variability type description

variability type description
CEP Cepheids. Radially pulsating, high luminosity (classes Ib-II) variables with periods in the range of 1-135 days and amplitudes from several hundredths to 2 mag in V (in the B band, the amplitudes are greater). Spectral type at maximum light is F; at minimum, the types are G-K. The longer the period of light variation,the later is the spectral type. The maximum of the surface-layer expansion velocity almost coinciding with maximum light.
