We present photometric sequences in the Johnson's BV and Cousins' R bands in the fields of 10 BL Lacertae objects (BL Lacs) monitored at the Torino Astronomical Observatory. Data were taken during 14 photometric nights from February 1995 to May 1997. The 56 calibrated stars are brighter than V=16 and can be used as comparison objects in order to derive the BL Lac magnitudes. Finding charts are included for the stars identification.

Key words: galaxies: active -- BL Lacertae objects: general

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
