We present and discuss the observations of 14 Ae and A type shell stars in the visual, the H$\alpha$ region and the near infrared. At least 57% of these stars are spectrum variables. The Paschen lines are formed in a region which has the characterics of giant stars. We find that the systems lie one magnitude above the main sequence and that a large percentage belong to double and triple systems.

Key words: stars: early type; emission line; variables

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.
