Re: HD 116274
Mike et al,
It is worth noting that, despite their abundance, there is still not
a *single* binary RR Lyr known. (The evidence for TU UMa is not
compelling.) If you see flattening at minimum, another possible
explanation is binarity (or, strictly speaking, additional light
in the same resolving element).
So, keep your eyes peeled for binary RR Lyrae candidates - they would
be a find!
