Faint Cepheid studies. I. Comparison with existing data sets Henden A.A. <Astron. J. 111, 902 (1996)> =1996AJ....111..902H
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Photometry, UBVRI Abstract: UBVRI data on 36 short-period (P<5days) Cepheids is given. The observing techniques and reduction procedures are described. A consistent set of finding charts, a set of standard stars for each Cepheid, and improved coordinates are also presented. File Summary:
