J/BaltA/10/589 Stars with large HIP photometric amplitudes (Adelman, 2001)

Stars with the largest Hipparcos photometric amplitudes. Adelman S.J. <Baltic Astronomy, 10, 589 (2001)> =2001BaltA..10..589A
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable Keywords: stars: variability Abstract: A list of the 2027 stars that have the largest photometric amplitudes in Hipparcos Photometry shows that the most variables stars are all Miras. The percentage of variable types change as a function of amplitude. This compilation should also be of value to photometrists looking for relatively unstudied, but large amplitude stars.
