The Palomar Transient Factory proves to be a prolific source of Magnetic Cataclysmic Variables, selected by their distinctive photometric variability, and followed up spectroscopically. Here, we present six new candidate systems, together with preliminary photometric periods and spectra.

Long-term photometric behaviour of outbursting AM CVn systems
The AM CVn systems are a class of He-rich, post-period minimum, semidetached, ultracompact binaries. Their long-term light curves have been poorly understood due to the few systems known and the longExpand
CONSTRAINING THE TRUE NATURE OF AN EXOTIC BINARY IN THE CORE OF NGC 6624
We report on the identification of the optical counterpart to Star1, the exotic object serendipitously discovered by Deutsch et al. in the core of the Galactic globular cluster NGC 6624. Star1 hasExpand
PTF1J2224 +17: A short‐period, high‐field polar
We present time-resolved photometry of the cataclysmic variable (CV) PTF1J2224+17 obtained during 4 nights in October 2018 and January 2019 from Inastars observatory. The object is variable on aExpand
