I would like to send you observations of a new variable star (Brh V151), which I have discovered in a systematic CCD-based search for new variables. In each observing run typically 600 images are taken of several survey fields. The frames are processed automatically.

CCD-camera: Starlight Xpress SX (unfiltered)
Telescope: Celestron-8 (20 cm Schmidt-Cassegrain)

New variable star:
new Brh V151 00 24 39.1 +24 55 22.5 (J2000) 12.7-13.4 (Rotse)

comments: Brh V151: GSC 1731 551

The star is mentioned in the paper:
Astron. J., 120, 1516-1531 (2000) - September 2000
The INT search for metal-poor stars: spectroscopic observations and
classification via artificial neural networks: (Fe/H: -1.82).

The following observations and the Rotse data suggest an WUMa variable with a period of 0.42283
days, but a light curve similar to a Beta Lyrae variable.

The Rotse data are available at:
