[46.22] V802 Aquilae and V854 Scorpii : Two Neglected High Amplitude delta Scuti Stars

E. Hintz (Brigham Young University)

To test the observational limits of the David Derrick Telescope in the Orson Pratt Observatory at Brigham Young University a number of faint, southern, high amplitude \delta Scuti stars were observed. These stars ranged in declination from 03 to 32 and in V magnitude from 7.5 to 14.5. The stars used for this test were HY Librae, V976 Scorpii, V703 Scorpii, V802 Aquilae, and V854 Scorpii. Results from two of these stars, V802 Aql and V854 Sco, will be presented. Early reductions seem to indicate that V802 Aql is not a member of the HADS group.
