This cataclysmic system is observed flickering
V1193 VOri is a cataclysmic binary, that is with an accreting white dwarf.
It is classified as a "nova like" but it does not seem to be much studied.
According to Papadaki et al (2004) there is an orbital modulation
with a period of 3.96h and an amplitude of 0.05 mag.
This is a CBA target for Dec 2006.
The observations were carried out with a 203mm SC telescope, a Clear filter
and a SBIG ST7E camera (KAF401E CCD). Each image has a duration of 60s.
The comparison star is GSC 4752-01223 with an assumed unfiltered magnitude of 12.0
and the check star is GSC 4752-01202.
The light curves:
Red: V1193 Ori. Blue: the checkstar, shifted by +1.0 magnitude.
The error bars are +/- the 1 sigma statistical uncertainties.
Some clouds towards the end.
