Abstract

 

This experiment was designed to plot the light curves of four variable star candidates of an intermediary magnitude range in order to determine if any were variables, and if so, what type(s). Research was done using two 24" telescopes, located at Mt. Wilson and Table Mountain. One star (R. A. 21h 43m 54.205s, Decl. -00 13' 40.12" (2000) was found to be variable, and the data indicate it is a W Ursae Majoris-type eclipsing binary.
