Abstract : The researches on nebular variables and flare stars sponsored by the European Office of aerospace Research under Grant AF-EOAR 62 - 32 have been made, at the Astrophysical Observatory of Asiago of the University of Padova, in the period 1 October 1961 through 31 December 1962 with two different telescopes: the parabolic telescope of 122 cm. F:5 and the Schmidt telescope of 50-40 cm.F:2.5. The large telescope was used for investigations on faint objects, particularly on nebular variables weaker than magnitude 16 pg, and for the discovery of sudden flares of faint stars with the technique of the multiple exposures.
