I report the discovery of nine new variable stars in Cygnus: five pulsating (VSX J192319.8+280832, VSX J192405.8+280352, VSX J192220.7+275518, VSX J192304.4+280231, VSX J192255.1+274744) and four eclipsing (VSX J192252.4+280217, VSX J192251.4+280456, VSX J192226.0+281019, VSX J192524.9+275342). The variability type of the variable star [WM2007] 1176, that was considered in literature a possible RRC, was found to be a W UMa variable with an obvious O'Connell effect.
