Variable Stars
« on: September 06, 2009, 11:49:14 PM »
I just want to bring this back, with better ideas...

Don't you think it would be good to have a variable star preset. Then you choose what type it is and ranomizes (within classification) a star.

Like:

Intrisic
Delta Cep
W Vir
RR Lyr
Delta Sct
SX Pho
Beta Cep
PV Tel
Omicron Cet (Mira)
Semi-regular
slow irregulars
RV Tau
Alpha Cygni (Deneb)
pulsating white dwarves
?Herbig Ae/Ab???
FU Ori
Wolf-Rayet
Flare
Luminous blue
Gamma Cas
R CoB
RS CVn
Supernovae
Novae (It spawns a star and a white dwarf sucking up outer gasses)
Dwarf Novae
Z And

Extrinsic

ROTATING
-Non-spherical

- Stellar Spots
--FK CMb (Extremely fast rotationg stars)
--BY Dra

-Magnetic Fields
--Alpha2 CVn
--SX Ari
--Optically varible pulsars

BINARY
Algol
Beta Lyr
W UMa (Did you know the stars are EXTREMELY (1% of all stars) popular!)


These are from wikipedia
