Abstract (from CDS):
We present results from high-speed photometry of a further 13 faint cataclysmic variables. V356 Aql (Nova Aql 1936) shows flare-like outbursts with recurrence time-scales ∼3000 s, but no coherent periodicities. Aqr1 is an intermediate polar with a spin period of 6.7284 min and a probable orbital period Porb= 3.226 h derived from orbital sidebands. Its orbital sideband frequencies show very variable amplitudes. The published spectroscopic period of 2.0 h suggests that Aqr1 is similar to GW Lib and FS Aur in having an additional periodicity of unknown origin. FIRST J1023+0038 has Porb= 4.7548 h with an orbital modulation of range 0.45 mag, probably caused by reflection effect from a hot white dwarf primary; as such it may have been a nova sometime in the past few decades. Hα 0242 is a deeply eclipsing very low mass-transfer rate system, probably a dwarf nova of very long outburst interval, with Porb= 1.792 h. GI Mon, an old nova, has optical modulations at 4.325 h and possibly also at 48.6 min and is thus a candidate intermediate polar. AO Oct, an SU UMa type dwarf nova, shows orbital modulation at quiescence with Porb= 94.097 min. V972 Oph (Nova Ophiuchi 1957) showed no flickering activity during one set of observations, but did so at a later time, confirming the correctness of the identification of this object, but it shows no orbital modulation. SDSS 0155 is a deeply eclipsing polar with an orbital period of 87.13 min. SDSS 0233 shows flaring activity but no discernible periodicity. No periodicity was found in the new AM CVn candidate SDSS 1240. SDSS 1556 shows a periodic modulation at 1.778 h, which is possibly due to orbital motion. SDSS 2050 is an eclipsing polar with Porb= 1.5702 h. FH Ser (Nova Serpentis 1970) has strong flickering activity but no detectable orbital modulation.
