Proposal Information for 2010B-0009


PI: Edward G. Schmidt, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, eschmidt1@unl.edu
Address: Physics Department, Lincoln, NE 68502-0111, USA

Title: Type II Cepheids and Related Variables

Abstract: This proposal is to continue a project to identify new type II Cepheids among variables found in large sky surveys. Over the past seven years, photometry has been obtained for about 500 Cepheid candidates and spectra have been obtained for those that appeared to be of interest based on the photometry. Photometry is currently underway for another 600. This request is for observing time at Kitt Peak to obtain spectra of stars from this group that turn out to be of interest.
