Abstract
We report on the discovery of a new variable star during the search for new exoplanets in the Centaurus constellation from the archive of the FRAM telescope, operated by the FRAM team at Los Leones, near Malargüe, Argentina. The star is catalogued as GSC 08630-01117 (11h 36m 10s -53° 12’ 15.04”). From the light curve, the star should be an ELL-type variable. We computed the period P = 0.6311+/- 0.0002 days. The maximum is 13.07 +/- 0.02 mag and minimum is 13.22 +/-0.02 mag (in the Johnson V filter) with an amplitude of about 0.15 mag. We registered this star in the CzeV catalogue and in the VSX catalogue as new variable star CzeV603. The FRAM telescope observed several transits of known exoplanets. These observations show the ability to detect new exoplanets using the FRAM telescope.
