Catalog of Variable Stars in the OGLE-I Fields|
from the Image Subtraction Method
The catalog contains data for 2016 variable stars found in the four OGLE-I fields, MM1-A, MM1-B, MM7-A, and MM7-B. This is the result of the reanalysis of the OGLE-I observations with the Image Subtraction / Difference Image Analysis method. The results for the other 16 OGLE-I fields will be included soon. The catalog contains:
The variable stars are divided into 13 categories defined here. The table below gives the number of stars of a given type in the catalog.
The files which are referred to via DATA_I and DATA_V links in the table above contain tarred and gzipped files with photometry for individual stars. The individual files are named according to the following scheme: <star_name>[subfield]_<filter>.dat, e.g. MM1-0090A_I.dat. The subfield (A or B) is used only when a star was observed in both overlapping fields. Otherwise, the subfield is omitted, so the data file has a name like MM1-0090_I.dat. The data files contain the following entries:
The files which are referred to via PLOTS links in the table above contain tarred and gzipped files with PostScript plots of the IC-filter light curves as well as finding charts. A sample chart for a periodic star is shown below.
The light curve is shown in the left-hand panel. The magnitudes are folded with the period shown in the top right corner. The star name is given in top left corner, whereas the cross-identifications are given in the bottom. If the data from two adjacent parts of the field were combined, like in this case, an encircled 'C' letter appears right of the star name. The right-hand top panel shows finding chart of 99 x 99 pixels (43'' x 43'') with the variable star centered and encircled with a light-grey circle. In the right-hand bottom panel, the classification, right ascension, declination, IC-filter magnitude and (V-IC) colour, are given.
For stars classified as APER, MIRA, MLE and PER with dominating periods longer than 25 days the light curve is shown as a function of heliocentric Julian Day (see figure).
Finally, the files which are referred to via TABLES links in the table above contain text entries for variable stars. The tables include the following information:
