Abstract

Since November 2003, we have monitored AGB candidates in infrared wavelengths with the Kagoshima 1m telescope. We present the latest results based on the data until June 2011. For each of 400 monitored AGB stars, we estimate the periods, amplitudes, and mean apparent magnitudes in K band. Based on the two color diagram we choose 259 objects as Miras. We use the period–luminosity relation to obtain distances to them. As results we show the 3 dimensional distribution of 259 Mira variables.
