J/AJ/107/1764                   RR Lyrae and CMD of NGC 6388 (Silbermann+, 1994)

RR Lyrae stars and color-magnitude diagram of the globular cluster NGC 6388 SILBERMANN N.A., SMITH H.A., BOLTE M., HAZEN M.L. <Astron. J. 107, 1764 (1994)> =1994AJ....107.1764S (SIMBAD/NED Reference)
Abstract: We present new V, B-V and V, V-R color-magnitude diagrams for the bulge globular cluster NGC 6388. These diagrams indicate that NGC 6388 is a metal-rich globular cluster with color-magnitude morphology similar to that of 47 Tucanae. We have conducted a search for new variable stars close to NGC 6388, finding three new RR Lyrae stars. The membership of these and previously discovered RR Lyrae stars near NGC 6388 is discussed. There is reason for believing that some of these variables are nonmembers. Others, however, may belong to the cluster and may be similar to the RR Lyrae star V9 in 47 Tuc. Addresses: Silbermann N.A.
