Discovery of a new cataclysmic variable through optical variability and X-ray emission.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present discovery observations of the new cataclysmic variable star (CV) 1RXS J092737.4-191529, as well as spectra and photometry of SY Vol. The selection technique that turned up these two CVs is described; it should be efficient for finding dwarf novae with high outburst duty cycles. Two very common observational features of CVs, namely optical variability and X-ray emission, are combined to select targets for follow-up observations. Long-slit spectra were taken to identify CVs in the sample. Two out of three objects selected in this way are CVs. One of these is the known dwarf nova SY Vol, while the second system, 1RXS J092737.4-191529, is a new discovery. We present medium resolution spectra, UBVRI magnitudes, and high-speed photometry for both these CVs. Rapid flickering in the light curve of 1RXS J092737.4-191529 confirms the mass transferring binary nature of this object; it is probably a dwarf nova that was in quiescence during our observations.
