Binary stars and light speed

I want to revive a old astronomical dispute about light speed and
binary star system.

For present discussion two sources are used as reference:
http://www.datasync.com/~rsf1/desitter.htm
http://www.elkadot.com/relativity/Binary%20systems%20and%20light%20speed%20variability.htm

The basic ideea for a new interpretation of binary star system period
is related to a new concept: temporal abberation.
When succesively a star cover another in such system, depending on
stars relative speeds (related to Earth observer), the photons are
travelling with different speeds.
Therefore further away is such system, smaller is the ,,apparent"
period of revolution.
