One of the fun things about observing variable stars is that some star or another is always doing something a little out of the ordinary.  AF Cyg is a semi-regular variable that has recently decided to have a larger amplitude than it has had for some years.  The plot is the past 2000 days of visual observations from the AAVSO.  It will be fun to see whether the greater amplitude persists.afcyg.jpg

AF CYG  6000.jpg Interesting post indeed.

Here is 6000 days (about) going back

when I did have AF Cyg in my programme (blue crosses).

Instrumental magnitudes in V (green dots) nicely confirm visual.

In my opinion AF Cyg  is highly irregular but one never knows

what happen next........

best regards
