Abstract (from CDS):

Aims. We aim to obtain time-series photometry of the very crowded central regions of Galactic globular clusters; to obtain better angular resolution thanhas been previously achieved with conventional CCDs on ground-based telescopes; and to complete, or improve, the census of the variable star population in those stellar systems.
Methods. Images were taken using the Danish 1.54-m Telescope at the ESO observatory at La Silla in Chile. The telescope was equipped with an electron-multiplying CCD, and the short-exposure-time images obtained (ten images per second) were stacked using the shift-and-add technique to produce the normal-exposure-time images (minutes). Photometry was performed via difference image analysis. Automatic detection of variable stars in the field was attempted.
Results. The light curves of 12541 stars in the cores of ten globular clusters were statistically analysed to automatically extract the variable stars. We obtained light curves for 31 previously known variable stars (3 long-period irregular, 2 semi-regular, 20 RR Lyrae, 1 SX Phoenicis, 3 cataclysmic variables, 1 W Ursae Majoris-type and 1 unclassified) and we discovered 30 new variables (16 long-period irregular, 7 semi-regular, 4 RR Lyrae, 1 SX Phoenicis and 2 unclassified). Fluxes and photometric measurements for these stars are available in electronic form through the Strasbourg astronomical Data Center.

CDS comments: Paragraph 8.4.1: V11 probably Cl* NGC 6093 DN 1. Paragraph 8.5: V81 = [KTR2013] V58 = Cl* NGC 6121 SAW V81 and V101 = [NBH2014] 3487 = Cl* NGC 6121 SAW V101. For objects Cl* NGC 5286 SAW V37 to V58, there is a ∼6 arcsec difference between coordinates from 2016A&A...588A.128F and coordinates from 2010AJ....139..357Z.
