In 2008–2012, we performed CCD observations of selected variable stars with the 76-cm telescope of the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO, Republic of South Africa). An SBIG ST-10XME CCD camera equipped with BVI filters of the Kron–Cousins system (Cousins 1976) was used. As a by-product of these observations, we discovered and studied 13 new variable stars. For period determination, we made use of the WinEfk software provided by V.P. Goranskij (Sternberg Astronomical Institute). In several cases, we were able to confirm brightness variations and improve variability periods using the publicly available electronic archive of CCD observations of the ASAS-3 project (Pojmanski 2002).
