J/A+AS/112/407      Variable Stars in the Sculptor dwarf galaxy (Kaluzny+, 1995)

OGLE Catalogue of Variable Stars in the Sculptor Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy Kaluzny J., Kubiak M., Szymanski M., Udalski A., Krzeminski W., Mateo M. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 112, 407 (1995)> =1995A&AS..112..407K
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, optical; Stars, variable; Positional data Keywords: galaxies: Local Group - galaxies: stellar content - galaxies: individual: Sculptor - HR diagram - stars: horizontal branch - stars: variables: others Description: The central area of the Sculptor dwarf galaxy was surveyed for variable stars as a side-program of the OGLE project. Light curves in the V band were obtained for 226 RR Lyr stars and for 3 anomalous cepheids. The data on RR Lyr variables in four nearby dwarf galaxies are summarized and discussed briefly.

Note (1): RR Lyr type originally from table1, while anomalous Cepheids originally in table3 are marked "aCeph". A question mark indicates an uncertain classification while 'B' indicates variable period or amplitude (i.e. Blazhko effect)
