Abstract

Image-tube spectrograms (resolution ~ 1 Å) of the Ha emission line in 15 late-type dwarf stars are examined for evidence of equivalent-width variability on a time scale of days, weeks, and years. Scattered data show Ha variations in three known BY Draconis variables: YY Gem, Gl 182, and BD + 48° 1958A. A much more extensive series of spectrograms of BY Dra itself obtained during 1972 and 1976 shows only a marginal correlation between Ha EW and rotational phase. Criteria for detection of such variability are noted.
