We report the detection of Cepheid variable stars in the barred spiral galaxy NGC 1365, located in the Fornax cluster, using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2).

The two photometry packages ALLFRAME and DoPHOT were separately used to obtain profile-fitting photometry of all the stars in the HST field. The search for Cepheid variable stars resulted in a sample of 52 variables, with...[Show more]
