Abstract

We present a large observing project monitoring globular clusters (GC) over long time baselines, which will lead to a complete census of variable stars in those clusters down to several magnitudes below the horizontal branch (HB). The use of Lucky Imaging (LI) will allow us to obtain high-precision photometry for even faint objects, and long-term monitoring will also mean that observations are sensitive to detecting other slow transient phenomena, such as gravitational microlensing, the primary aim of this project.
