These stars are known to show pronounced photometric variability, which can be used for a more detailed characterisation of these highly evolved stars. Owing to their well-studied parameters, these Local Group members are ideal candidates for comparative studies. Through photometric monitoring, we attempt to provide a catalogue of long-period variables (LPVs), including Mira variables, semi-regular variables, and even irregular variables in NGC 147 and NGC 185. We investigate the light variations and compare the characteristics of these two LPV populations with the results found for other galaxies, such as the LMC. Description: Tables list the period search results of the two dwarf galaxies NGC 147 and NGC 185. The first five columns give the internal IDs, the coordinates (J2000), mean i-band magnitudes (obtained from the time series) as well as K-band magnitudes. Periods, sigma-amplitudes, and the SIGSPEC-significance are found in the next three columns. Long-period variables exhibiting two significant periods have entries in the ninth and tenth columns listing the second period and its SIGSPEC-significance. The last two columns give the types of different chemistry and the IDs carried out by the authors of Nowotny et al. (2003, Cat. J/A+A/403/93). File Summary:
