Abstract / Description:We present the first CCD photometric
observations of the northern open cluster NGC
2126. Data were taken on eight nights in February
and December 2002 with a total time span of ~57
hours. Almost 1000 individual V-band frames were
examined to find short-period variable stars. We
discovered six new variable stars, of which one
is a promising candidate for an eclipsing binary
with a pulsating component. Here we present
single-epoch colours and magnitudes for ~800
stars in the field and the light curve data for
the six variables. Note that the coordinates in
ngc2126.dat are not particularly accurate because
of the applied crude astrometry (errors up to
+/-1-2arcsec are quite likely close to the edge).
For variable star identification, consult
table3.dat. (8 data files).
