Abstract

Physicists S.V. Antipin, K.V. Sokolovsky, and T.I. Ignatieva began observations of the variable star ASAS182612 in 2005, and found it to be the first known eclipsing binary with a type II Cepheid component in our galaxy. A month after Antipin’s publication, the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) sent out an alert to campaign for observations of ASAS182612. From July 2007 to November 2015, 147 nights of multi-filter photometric data have been collected for ASAS182162. The pulsation period found was 4.1591 ± 0.0001 days and the orbital period 51.352 ± 0.016 days.
