Abstract We present precise positions and finder charts for probable candidates
for thirteen variables found on Cape Observatory plates, part of sixty new variables
near η Carinae originally published by Worssell in 1919. BVRI datasets are presented
for eight of the stars (BE, BF, BG, BH, BM, BN, BW, and BY Car), showing that most
of these stars are essentially constant. BK Car may be identical with NSV 4957.
