List of semiregular variable stars

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of semiregular variable stars. Variability ranges are taken from the General Catalogue of Variable Stars (GCVS) where these are visual magnitudes, otherwise from the International Variable Star Index (VSX). Spectral types are taken from the GCVS, which may differ from more recent MK spectral types but often defines a range.
