HD 16485, a possible Be star?

Postby Francisco Campos » Sat Feb 20, 2016 8:14 pm


trying to obtain a spectrum of V493 Per (a Wolf-Rayet star), I took a single spectrum of HD 16485 in order to calibrate the instrumental response. In the catalogue Simbad, this star is classified as a normal B9 V star of mag.V=6.59, but my spectrum shows the H-alpha in emission.

What do you think? I haven't found information in the BeSS database. Could someone confirm or reject that HD 16485 is a Be star?

Francisio, Thierry Lemoult found this star to be a possible Be candidate in 2014 - see here http://www.astrosurf.com/aras/be_candid ... 16485.html. Good spot though.
