[117.01] Examination and Monitoring of delta Scuti Variables

E.G. Hintz, T.C. Bush (Brigham Young University), L.A. Walter (Payson High School)

Using a variety of telescopes and a variety of observers we continue our program of examining and monitoring \delta Scuti variables. The telescopes range from an 8-in up to a 1.8-meter. The observers include high school students, undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty. We will present information about the overall program and results for a number of stars including DQ Cephei, BO Lyncis, AN Lyncis, V407 Cephei, and V577 Ophiuchi. Many other stars have been observed as part of student projects. Therefore, other posters from our group include presentations on a number of individual stars (QS Geminorum, CQ Lyncis, and V1438 Aquilae) and a poster on our spectral observing campaign. We will also report on the installation of a 10-in telescope at Payson High School and its participation in our observing campaigns.

We would like to acknowledge the following : a NSF REU grant PHY-9988852, an AAS Small Research Grant for equipment on the 10-in Payson High Telescope, an AAS Small Research Grant for purchase of two research filters, the Theodore Dunham Jr. Grants for Research in Astronomy, and use of the telescopes of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory.
