The Clusters AgeS Experiment (CASE): Variable Stars in the Globular Cluster 47 Tucanae
Kaluzny, J.; Rozyczka, M.; Pych, W.; Krzeminski, W.; Zloczewski, K.; Narloch, W.; Thompson, I. B.
Abstract:
Based on over 5400 BV images of 47 Tuc collected between 1998 and 2010 we obtained light curves of 65 variables, 19 of which are newly detected objects. New variables are located mostly just outside of the core in a region poorly studied by earlier surveys of the cluster. Among them there are four detached eclipsing binaries and five likely optical counterparts of X-ray sources. Two detached systems are promising targets for follow-up observations. We briefly discuss properties of the most interesting new variables.
