Abstract

We present a catalog of the observed properties of Mira-type variable stars detected with the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT). Asymptotic giant branch (AGB) candidates were identified in KELT using a combination of photometric data from KELT and 2MASS colors. Of the 4 million objects with KELT photometry, 3332 Mira-like variables were identified. Here, we present their observed periods and luminosities which will place important constraints on future theoretical work on the effect convection has on pulsation periods and mode stability.
