Spectroscopy of Puzzling OGLE Variable Stars. Mysterious object OGLE-GD-DSCT-0058

We have taken low-resolution spectra of 24 various puzzling OGLE variable objects detected in the OGLE-III Galactic disk and bulge fields. The spectra have helped in the identification of some young stellar objects and magnetic stars and a definitive classification of many short-period multi-mode pulsating stars that they are of δ Sct not β Cep type.

We confirm that OGLE-GD-CEP-0013 is a classical Cepheid despite a peculiar shape of its light curve.

The spectrum of object OGLE-GD-DSCT-0058 shows that it is too hot to be a δ Sct type star. Its observed properties do not fit to any kind of known pulsating variables.

Updated data on the OGLE variables can be found in the OGLE Internet archive.
