Nakajima, K.; Yoshida, S.; Ohkura, N.

Kazuhiro Nakajima revealed that MisV1096 is a W UMa-type eclipsing variable with unfiltered CCD variations between 13.48 mag and 14.25 mag, and period of 0.4696 days. The brightness at primary minimum and secondary minimum is almost same.

MisV1096, R.A. 00h56m44s.22, Decl. +41o29'23".1 (J2000.0), is a new variable star discovered in the course of the MISAO Project from Nobuo Ohkura's unfiltered CCD images taken between Sept. 6 and Nov. 6 in 2000.

Nakajima observed it on 8 nights between Sept. 6 and Oct. 18 in 2003 with 0.25-m f/5 Schmidt-Cassegrain and CV-04 CCD, and caught four minima.

The period is derived as 0.4696 days from these minima.

Here is the light curve of MisV1096 from total 505 observations. Comparison star is TYC2-2806.1972.1, R.A. 00h55m40.8s, Decl. +41o27'27" (2000.0), 10.54 mag(V). The phases on the figure were calculated by the ephemeris:

Primary minimum HJD = 2452930.9602 + 0d.4696 x E
