A spectroscopic survey of some high-latitude blue variables

Abstract

As part of a search for optically variable extragalactic objects, we obtained slit spectrograms of 32 high-galactic-latitude objects selected from the variable-star literature. One of the objects, V395 Her, is a distant galaxy, but we question its reported variability. The remaining objects are galactic variable stars; they include several eruptive variables, new RR Lyrae-type variables, and a variable white dwarf.
