J/AJ/109/618          RR Lyrae Stars in NGC 5053                   (Nemec+ 1995)

B,V Photometry of the RR Lyrae Stars in the Very Metal-Poor Globular Cluster NGC 5053 Nemec J.M., Mateo M., Schombert J.M. <Astron. J. 109, 618 (1995)> =1995AJ....109..618N
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular; Stars, variable; Photometry Abstract: The RR Lyrae stars in NGC 5053 are investigated using B,V photometry derived from CCD frames taken on 15 nights between 1985 and 1994. Estimates of fundamental photometric parameters are presented for the ten stars, including mean B and V magnitudes, pulsation periods, pulsation amplitudes, <B>-<V> colors, and period change rates. Until now the mean B,V magnitudes were unknown because the previous photographic photometry by Baade [Mitteilungen der Hamburger, Sternwarte, B6, n.29 (1928)], Sawyer [Pub. DDO 1, No. 18, p. 357 (1946)], Rosino [MSAIt, 20, 3 (1949)], and Mannino [Pub. Obs. Bologna, 8, No. 12 (1963)] is not on the Johnson system and is not readily transformed to that system.

1- 2 I2 --- Night Observing night number 5- 16 F12.4 d HJD *HJD of midpoint of observation 19- 24 F6.3 mag Vmag []? V magnitude 26- 30 F5.3 mag e_Vmag *[]? Uncertainty in Vmag 33- 38 F6.3 mag Bmag *[]? B magnitude 40- 44 F5.3 mag e_Bmag *[]? Uncertainty in Bmag
Note on HJD: The mid-HJD of each exposure was computed using M. Fletcher's (Dominion Astrophysical Observatory) REDSUN program. Note on Bmag: In file table3.dat, night 17, HJD 8416.7570, the B magnitude was derived from I through a V-I,B-V transformation. Note on e_Vmag, e_Bmag: The uncertainties are lower limits since they are the quantities returned by the photometry programs and do not include the systematic zero-point uncertainties introduced by the transformation from instrumental to standard magnitudes.

Note on e_Bmin, e_Bmax, e_Vmin, e_Vmax: Uncertainties in minimum and maximum magnitudes are subjective estimates based on the number and quality of the observations.
