Abstract

(Abstract only) We present the photometric study of an eclipsing binary star, V798 Her, in the globular cluster NGC 6341. The observations were obtained in Johnson B, V, and R filters using an 0.8-m Tarleton telescope and a CCD photometer. The observed light curves after the determination of light elements show that V798 Her is a W UMa contact binary system with a period of 0.2951110 day. Wilson Devinney Mathematical Model (2017 version) was used for the analysis and for obtaining the photometric solution of V798 Her.
