[19.01] Low Resolution Spectroscopy and Classifications of Eight Candidate Cataclysmic Variables

L. Galli (Colorado College), Dr. L. Schmidtobreick (European Southern Observatory), A. Whiting (Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory)

Classification of candidate Cataclysmic Variables was accomplished using the 1.5 meter spectrograph at Cerro Tololo Observatory. Candidate Variables were selected from the Catalog of Cataclysmic Variables and observed in low-resolution spectroscopy spanning roughly 6000 angstroms in the visible and near infrared. Eight objects were observed and four were classified as Dwarf Novae (Fq Mon, UY Pup, Oct (LB 9963), and Lib (ASAS 153616-0839.1)). Wy Cma and Cet (PB 6657) were determined not to be variable and the two other objects were indeterminable. Funding was provided by the Cerro Tololo REU program and National Science Foundation.
