Results of the first two years of observations using the All Sky Automated Survey prototype camera are presented. More than 140 000 stars in 50 Selected Fields covering 300 sq. degrees were monitored each clear night in the I-band resulting in the ASAS Photometric I-band Catalog containing over 50 x 10^6 individual measurements. Nightly monitoring over 100 standard stars confirms that most of our data remains within sigma_I=0.03 of the standard I system. Search for the stars varying on the time…

Eclipsing binaries in the All Sky Automated Survey catalogue

The All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) is a long-term project to monitor bright variable stars over the whole sky. It has discovered 50 099 variables brighter than V < 14 mag south of declination +28 ◦

The Catalina Surveys Southern periodic variable star catalogue

Here, we present the results from our analysis of 6 yr of optical photometry taken by the Siding Spring Survey (SSS). This completes a search for periodic variable stars within the 30 000 deg^2 of

Automated classification of variable stars for All‐Sky Automated Survey 1–2 data

With the advent of surveys generating multi-epoch photometry and the discovery of large numbers of variable stars, the classification of these stars has to be automatic. We have developed such a

Monitoring All Sky for Variability

A few percent of all stars are variable, yet over 90% of variables brighter than 12 mag have not been discovered yet. There is a need for an all‐sky search and for the early detection of any

Northern Sky Variability Survey: Public Data Release

The Northern Sky Variability Survey (NSVS) is a temporal record of the sky over the optical magnitude range from 8 to 15.5. It was conducted in the course of the first-generation Robotic Optical

System Description and First Light Curves of the Hungarian Automated Telescope, an Autonomous Observatory for Variability Search

Having been operational at Kitt Peak for more than a year, the prototype (HAT‐1) of the Hungarian Automated Telescope (HAT) has been used for an all‐sky variability search of the northern hemisphere.

Multiperiodic Galactic field RR Lyrae stars in the ASAS catalogue

The All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) monitors bright stars (8 < V < 14 mag) south of declination +28 ◦ . The ASAS Catalogue of Variable Stars (ACVS) presently contains 50 099 objects; among them are

Astronomy with Small Telescopes

The All Sky Automated Survey is monitoring the entire sky to about 14 mag with a cadence of about 1 day; it has discovered about 105 variable stars, most of them new. The instrument used for the

Four New δ Scuti Pulsators from a Variability Survey of 131 Stars

In a photometric variability survey of 131 stars with B≲14 mag, we have found four new δ Scuti stars. We were sensitive to oscillation amplitudes as low as a few millimagnitudes (mmag). The detection

A search for photometric variability in magnetic chemically peculiar stars using ASAS-3 data

The (magnetic) chemically peculiar (CP) stars of the upper main sequence are well-suited laboratories for investigating the influence of magnetic fields on the stellar surface because they produce



The future of massive variability searches

This is a personal review of various issues related to massive photometric and astrometric searches. A complete inventory of variable stars down to almost any magnitude limit will improve our
