Two Confirmed Cataclysmic Variables in the Old Stellar Cluster


Based on new CCD photometry and spectroscopy we confirm the presence of two cataclysmic variables (CVs) in the very old open cluster NGC 6791. One of these variables, known as B8, was observed by Rucinski, Kaluzny & Hilditch (1996) to undergo a large magnitude outburst in 1995.
