Observing programs for differential photometry with CCD cameras
On the Astronomical Observatory on Kolonica Saddle there are 4 main long term observing programs
- Intermediate polars – monitoring of selected intermediate polars for spin period changes. More detailed data analysis is done by prof. Andronov team including data from Hlohovec, Baja, Korea, Crimea and USA. The campaign is a part of Inter- longitude Astronomy project, created and managed by prof. Andronov from Odessa National Maritime University. The list of targets.
- Superhumps in Cataclysmic variables – VSNET campaign conducted by T. Kato. Evolution of accretion discs investigated by photometric observations of superhump period variations. Most fruitful program. Serie of “Pdot“ papers. Targets of opportunity selected mainly from the vsnet-alert list.
- Project dwarf – The project aimed at detection of circumbinary extrasolar planets using prrecise timing of the minima of low-mass eclipsing binaries. Project already finished but some interesting objects are still observed.
- Eclipsing binaries W UMa type. 2 types of observations: 1. Times of minima in 1 or 2 filters. 2. Full phase multicolor light curves for modeling. List of targets.
