Two high resolution spectra of the hot RCrB star DY Cen in the red reg
ion are compared. The photospheric absorption lines show a radial velo
city variation of 12 km s(-1) between 1989 July and 1992 May. Emission
components to some CII lines present in 1989 are almost entirely abse
nt in 1992. Nebular forbidden lines of [OI], [NII] and [SII] appear un
changed from 1989 to 1992.
