LX Lac
8" SCT + Nikon DSLR

LX Lac is shown on the BAA chart for SU Lac and, noticing that it is also in most of my photometry images for that star, it seemed a worthwhile exercise to extend the photometry to include LX, which has been described as SRB with a range of 12.5 to 13.6 (p) and a period of 150 days. During 2017, it has been varying between 10.9 and 11.8 (V) in my images, with maxima that are broadly consistent with the 150 day period. The overall trend in 2017 appears to have been a slight fading.
