Keywords:astronomical photography, astronomical photographic plate archives, Gamma-Ray Bursts, optical transients, variable stars, asteroids
AbstractWe report on an ongoing study based on blink-comparison of more than 5000 Bamberg Observatory Southern Sky Patrol Plates performed within a continuation of a student high school project (Jugend Forscht). After a detailed analyses and classification, 6 non-classified objects were identified as emulsion defects, 19 as asteroids, 37 as variable stars, and 6 as real OT-GRB candidates.
