Title

Observations of Delta Scuti Variable Stars

Abstract

Astronomical observations of the following Delta Scuti variable stars were aggregated from archival data: GW Dra, V402 Cep, and V873 Her. The data will be reviewed and sent for publication. The observations were made between 1998 and 2018 at the Orson Pratt Observatory. During data review, significant degradation in the integrity of the physical storage format was discovered. The opportunity was taken to preserve the data for future study.
