We present optical data obtained with the 1.05 m telescope of the Torino Astronomical Observatory for five X-ray selected BL Lacertae objects. The data are in the Johnson's B, V, and Cousins' R bands. As the observing periods include the pointings of the Satellite per Astronomia X "Beppo'' (BeppoSAX), our optical information will be comparable with the X-ray observations for a better understanding of the properties of these objects. The present data also provide optical information on sources that have been rarely observed in the optical band. Variability on short time scales (a few days) was found only for 1ES 1959+650.

Key words: BL Lacertae objects: general -- BL Lacertae objects: individual: 1ES 0145+138, 1ES 0323+022, 1ES 1028+511, 1ES 1118+424, 1ES 1959+650

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.
