We present new observations of 26 symbiotic and symbiotic-like stars. The
photoelectric UBV observations were made during the years 1982-92, the
photographic in 1989-92 and visual in 1989-92. The most interesting results
can be summarized as follows: EG And: There is an apparent increase in all
three colours corresponding to the ascending branch of the secondary minimum.
UV Aur: The long-term photoelectric photometry supports our earlier
identification of the red giant component as the primary cause of light
variations. BF Cyg: UBV data cover well the last active phase of the star with
maximum around 1990 July. CH Cyg: The photoelectric data cover the sudden
light brightening starting in Feb-Mar 1992 and decline in Sep 1992. CI Cyg:
Long-term UBV observations are presented. AG Dra: UBV photometry cover almost
all the interval since the last outburst. CQ Dra: The star's brightness has
been decreasing monotonically during the present observational period. AX Per:
Our UBV data reveal an outburst (maximum around Nov 1989) with a total of five
minima occurring during the observational interval.
