ABSTRACT We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the faint eclipsing cataclysmicvariable OU Vir. For the first time in OU Vir, separate eclipses of the white dwarf andbright spot have been observed. We use timings of these eclipses to derive a purelyphotometric model of the system, obtaining a mass ratio of q = 0.175 ± 0.025, aninclination of i = 79 ◦ .2±0.7 and a disc radius of R d /a = 0.2315±0.0150. We separatethe white dwarf eclipse from the lightcurve and, by fitting a blackbody…

ULTRACAM photometry of the eclipsing cataclysmic variables XZ Eri and DV UMa
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the faint eclipsing cataclysmic variables XZ Eri and DV UMa. We determine the system parameters through two techniques: first, timings of the eclipse
PHL 1445: an eclipsing cataclysmic variable with a substellar donor near the period minimum
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the eclipsing dwarf nova PHL 1445, which, with an orbital period of 76.3 min, lies just below the period minimum of ~82 min for cataclysmic variable
A parameter study of the eclipsing CV in the Kepler field, KIS J192748.53+444724.5
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the eclipsing dwarf nova KIS J192748.53+444724.5 (KISJ1927) which is located in the Kepler field. Our data reveal sharp features corresponding to the

We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the eclipsing cataclysmic variable SDSS J150722.30+523039.8(hereafter SDSS J1507). This system has an orbital period of 66.61 minutes, placing it
ULTRACAM observations of SDSS J170213.26+322954.1 - an eclipsing cataclysmic variable in the period gap
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the eclipsing cataclysmic variable (CV) Sloan Digital Sky Survey J170213.26 + 322954.1 (hereafter SDSS J1702 + 3229). This system has an orbital
Pulsations, Boundary Layers, and Period Bounce in the Cataclysmic Variable RE J1255+266
We report time-series photometry of the quiescent optical counterpart of the EUV transient RE J1255+266. The star appears as a DA white dwarf with bright emission lines and a complex spectrum of
ULTRACAM photometry of the eclipsing cataclysmic variables GY Cnc, IR Com and HT Cas
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the eclipsing cataclysmic variables GY Cnc, IR Com and HT Cas. We find that the sharp eclipses in GY Cnc and IR Com are due to eclipses of the white
Cataclysmic Variables below the Period Gap: Mass Determinations of 14 Eclipsing Systems
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the eclipsing cataclysmic variables CTCV J1300-3052, CTCV J2354-4700 and SDSS J115207.00+404947.8. These systems have orbital periods of 128.07,
On the evolutionary status of short-period cataclysmic variables
We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of seven short-period (P-orb <= 95 min) eclipsing cataclysmic variables (CVs) from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. We determine the system parameters via
Distances and absolute magnitudes of dwarf novae: murmurs of period bounce
We redetermine the relationship between absolute magnitude and orbital period for dwarf novae, based on 46 stars with good distance estimates. This improves upon Warner's previous relation, building
