magnitudes, spectral classes, orbital elements:

author: P. Baize
magnitude of component A: 4,03
magnitude of component B: 4,03
spectral class component B: F4IV
spectral class component B: F4IV
period [y]: 192
semi-major axis [arcsec]: 1,92
inclination [deg]: 130,5
node [deg]: 52,2
eccentricity: 0,55
time of periastron passage: 1948,47
grade: reliable
reference: Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. 39, 83; 1980.
notes Star A is a Delta Scuti type variable. A small variation in the early RV's was not confirmed by fairly numerous subsequent observations. From the visual separations, Baize suggests a subsystem with P = 16 yr.
