J/A+AS/123/507      New variables in Sagittarius (Terzan+ 1997)

A photometric study of the Bright Cloud B in Sagittarius. VIII. 1061 new variable stars. Terzan A., Bernard A., Guibert J. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 123, 507 (1997)> =1997A&AS..123..507T (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Magnitudes Keywords: The Galaxy: structure; center - stars: variables ; AGB, post-AGB Description: For the coordinates and identification charts of the variables discovered in the other parts of the surveyed region, see references in the publication. A compilation of all the (∼4000) variables discovered in the entire 100 square-degree surveyed region in the course of this programme, is in preparation and will be available at CDS in electronic form.
