J/AJ/105/527    Photometry of RR Lyr stars in LMC cluster NGC 1835 (Walker 1993)

The Large Magellanic Cloud cluster NGC 1835: photometry of the RR Lyrae stars Walker A.R. <Astron. J. 105, 527 (1993)> =1993AJ....105..527W
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Clusters, globular ; Photometry, CCD Abstract: Photometry is presented for the RR Lyrae variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) cluster NGC 1835. Sixteen new variables have been discovered. Due to the extreme crowding of the LMC field stars, the scatter of the light curves and mean magnitudes is greater than that found for other LMC clusters studied under similar conditions. The derived parameters of the light curves yield E(B-V) = 0.13 and [Fe/H] = -1.8, consistent with previous measurements. The complete sample of RR Lyraes has mean magnitudes <V> = 19.38, <B> = 19.70. If a distance modulus of 18.5 mag for the LMC is assumed, then in the mean the NGC 1835 RR Lyraes have <Mv> = 0.48, almost identical to the average found by the same procedure for the six other LMC clusters.

Note (1): 1: GR1. Periods of several days are poorly constrained by the data available, and other periods with a frequency spacing of ∼0.03 day-1 are possible, although giving noticeably poorer light-curves. With the adopted period the phases near maximum have been missed, even so, the star is much too faint to be an LMC Cepheid which would be expected to have <V> = 15.4 2: GR2. Red variable. Mean magnitudes: HJD=2448207 (V=16.19, B=18.16), HJD=2448248 (V=16.89, B=18.91), HJD=2448279 (V=17.53, B=19.40) 3: GR4. Eclipsing binary 4: GR9. Low amplitude, noisy light-curve. The period is uncertain. A star of similar magnitude is at 1.5 arcsec separation. 5: GR10. Not measured 6: GR11. The GR period was adopted. The mean magnitudes are very faint, probably due to elevation of the sky by an adjacent bright star. 7: GR12. This star is the closest known variable to the cluster center. Only a few measurements were possible, and these scatter badly when passed with the GR period, so have been discussed. 8: GR16. Only a few useful observations, with a large phase gap. 9: GR17. Large phase gap due to the period being almost exactly 0.5 days. 10: GR20. GR period adopted. 11: GR21. No such star is marked on the GR chart although a period and light curve are given. None of the new variables found match the period. 12: GR37. Blended with another star. Photometry is very bright, almost certainly due to insufficient subtraction of the companion star.
