      I don’t know, but I suspect the B-V is given for whenever the photometry was done.  You might be able to find different values from different surveys.

      The spectrum and redness of a Carbon star changes as its light varies.  Most cycle between magnitudes and are definitely redder on the way down, magnitude-wise.

      Most of these stars have a B-V Index figure that does not have a range.

      Shouldn't there also be a range of variation in their B-V figures?

      And if so, where in the range is the B-V figure calculated?  Brightest?  Dimmest?

      Anyone have an idea?
