Extract

The results of several photometric campaigns (1986–1993) in the near IR of the six bright BL Lac objects 3C 66A, PKS 0422+004, PKS 0735+178, PKS 0754+100, PKS 0829+046 and OQ 530 are presented. The observations were carried out at the 1.5 m Italian IR Telescope at Gornergrat (TIRGO − 3150 m a.s.l.) equipped with a IR photometer using a InSb detector cooled at the solid nitrogen temperature and the standard J, H, K filters. The principal aims of our program are the search of rapid variability (typical time scales of 1 day or less) and of correlations between the flux level (typically in the J band, where the largest variation amplitude is found) and the spectral slope. In the following we summarize some relevant results.
