|The new eclipsing variable star GSC 02707-01173 in the field of DM Cyg
was discovered during cooperative observations of the latter variable star in
the Astronomical Observatory of Odessa University and the Astronomical Observatory
on Kolonica Saddle. A 48-cm AZT-3 reflector (Newtonian focus) with a CCD photometer
(Sony ICX429ALL chip, Peltier cooler) and a 28-cm reflector (Newtonian focus)
Meade DSI Pro CCD camera (Sony ICX254AL chip) were used, respectively. Our photometric
were collected during 2008-2009.
The reductions of the CCD frames were carried out using the MUNIPACK
(http://integral.sci.muni.cz/cmunipack) software. The comparison star TYC 2707 0891
and the check star TYC 2707 1687 1 were used.
The shape of the light curve indicates that the star is an EA eclipsing variable.
The secondary minimum was not detected.
For period determination, we used the following codes: Persea (based on the
method suggested for uneven sampled observations
by Schwarzenberg-Czerny 1996) and MCV (Andronov 1994).
The data from NSVS database (Wozniak et al. 2004) confirm variability of
the star, but it is impossible to find a common set of light elements for our
observations (2008-2009) and for those from the NSVS database (1999). Possibly, this
is due to a period variation of the star.|
