Light Curve from the AAVSO data base highlighting my observations (SRX). The green dots are V measures. The standstill is evident here. This is the first well defined standstill since observations have been recorded of this star.


My long term light curve of BP CrA. Observations from the start of 2013 showing the interesting behaviour with BP CrA in a standstill for over 200 days now at around magnitude 14.5.


A detailed look at my light curve updated to September 12. BP CrA still remains in a standstill at 14.5.
