New pulsating variable stars in the Stock 14 open cluster and surrounding fields



This paper presents the preliminary results of a multicolour photometric study of the young open cluster Stock 14 and adjacent ßelds. The reddening, distance and age of the cluster were determined from colour-colour and colour-magnitude diagrams by means of isochrone ßtting. Fourier analysis of the acquired time-series data was performed, which resulted in the discovery of new pulsating variable stars and candidates for such objects (© 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
