We present here a new major part of the OGLE Collection of Variable Stars - OGLE Collection of Galactic Cepheids. The new dataset was extracted from the Galaxy Variability Survey images - a dedicated large-scale survey of the Galactic disk and outer bulge conducted by the OGLE project since 2013. The OGLE collection contains 2718 Cepheids of all types - classical, type II and anomalous. It more than doubles the number of known Galactic classical Cepheids. Due to the long-term monitoring and…

Frequency analysis of OGLE-IV photometry for classical Cepheids in Galactic fields: non-radial modes and modulations
We analyse photometry of ∼2000 Galactic Cepheids available in the OGLE Collection of Variable Stars. We analyse both Galactic disk and Galactic bulge fields; stars classified both as singleand
OGLE-ing the Magellanic System: Cepheids in the Bridge
We present a detailed analysis of Magellanic Bridge Cepheid sample constructed using the OGLE Collection of Variable Stars. Our updated Bridge sample contains 10 classical and 13 anomalous Cepheids.
Into the Darkness: Classical and Type II Cepheids in the Zona Galactica Incognita
The far side of the Milky Way's disk is one of the most concealed parts of the known Universe due to extremely high interstellar extinction and point source density toward low Galactic latitudes.
TESS Observations of Cepheid Stars: First Light Results
We present the first analysis of Cepheid stars observed by the TESS space mission in Sectors 1–5. Our sample consists of 25 pulsators: ten fundamental mode, three overtone and two double-mode
The Gaia-ASAS-SN Classical Cepheid Sample. I. Sample Selection
We present a well-defined and characterized all-sky sample of classical Cepheids in the Milky Way, obtained by combining two time-domain all-sky surveys: Gaia DR2 (Gaia Collaboration et al. 2018) and
Galactic open cluster Cepheids – a census based on Gaia EDR3
In the Gaia era, the membership analysis and parameter determination of open clusters (OCs) are more accurate. We performed a census of OC’s classical Cepheids based on Gaia Early Data Release 3
A three-dimensional map of the Milky Way using classical Cepheid variable stars
TLDR
A map of the Milky Way in three dimensions, based on the positions and distances of thousands of classical Cepheid variable stars, shows the structure of the Galaxy’s young stellar population and allows us to constrain the warped shape of the galactic disc.
The Rotation Curve, Mass Distribution, and Dark Matter Content of the Milky Way from Classical Cepheids
With the increasing numbers of large stellar survey projects, the quality and quantity of excellent tracers to study the Milky Way is rapidly growing, one of which is the classical Cepheids.
Rotation Curve of the Milky Way from Classical Cepheids
Flat rotation curves of spiral galaxies are considered as an evidence for dark matter, but the rotation curve of the Milky Way is difficult to measure. Various objects were used to track the rotation
A revisited study of Cepheids in open clusters in the Gaia era
TLDR
It is concluded that the usage of cluster Cepheids as tentative probes of the period-age relations still faces difficulties due to the sparsely populated red giant branch and the stochastically sampled main-sequence turn-off of the open clusters, making age determinations a challenging task.
