Description

V* RY Dra (HD 112559 )

Semi-regular pulsating carbon star (spectral type C)

The image A is a combination of Near Ir R G B filters. The animated gif B shows each individual filter image. Note how the star is bright in the IR compared to the blue range. Its spectrum was acquired with a SA200 star analyser in the filter wheel, calibrated for dispersion and instrumental response correction.
