Radial Velocities of CH CYG Just as the Jets Appeared

Janaszak E., Mikolajewski M.

The period of maximum brightness of CH Cygni which started in mid 1981 finished at the end of July 1984, when sudden drop by about 1 mag was observed. At the same time a radio outburst has occurred and the jet structure has developed (Taylor et al., 1986). The Toruń Observatory has recorded the spectra of CH Cygni just at this moment. Significant spectral variations, especially development of wide wings in Balmer emission lines have been found (Mikołajewski and Tomov, 1985).
