[8.05] BVRI Photometry of the Eclipsing Spectroscopic Binary V1061 Cygni

H. A. Sheets, L.A. Marschall (Gettysburg College), G. Torres (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

A series of over 2000 images of the 9th magnitude eclipsing binary V1061 (HD235444, spectral type F8) was obtained during Autumn, 2002 using the 16-inch reflecting telescope of the Gettysburg College Observatory and a Photometrics 350 Camera equipped with a SITe 1024 x 1024 back-illuminated CCD chip. From the densely sampled BVRI light curves derived from these images, along with high-precision radial velocity data obtained at the Center for Astrophysics, we have computed a preliminary set of physical characteristics of the components of the V1061 Cygni system.
