We present new results of our pilot project of variable-star search using scanned photographic plates. The two square 1.5-to-1.5-degree regions in Cygnus studied in Kolesnikova et al. (2007) were re-examinated, with new findings made for that centered at 21h24m44s, +36deg21'51" (J2000). The observing material, as earlier, were 175 photographic plates taken with the 40-cm astrograph in Crimea in 1975 - 1995 and scanned by one of the authors (D. Kolesnikova) at 2540 dpi resolution with the Sternberg Institute's CREO EverSmart Supreme II flatbed scanner. Our analysis made use of the VAST software (Sokolovsky & Lebedev, 2005), based on the well-known SExtractor (Bertin, 2006). Numerous candidates were automatically checked for periodicity using a specially written code based on the Lafler & Kinman's period-search method. We also applied the period-search WinEffect software developed by V. Goranskij for the Windows environment. Seven previously unreported variable objects were discovered. Properties of these variable stars are presented in the Table above. The coordinates are from the USNO-A2.0 catalog (Monet et al., 1998).
