Abstract:We have conducted a large-scale survey of variable stars in the northern Galactic plane, about 320 square degrees using Kiso Wide Field Camera attached to the 105-cm Schmidt telescope at Kiso observatory. In the KISOGP (KWFC Intensive Survey of the Galactic Plane), we collected 40–100 epoch I-band images between 2012 and 2017. In our survey region roughly 5 million stars exist down to the limiting magnitude of ~16.5 mag in I. In the initial data analysis, we detected a couple of thousands of variable stars inc… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
