Dwarf novae (DNe) are a subclass of Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) with outbursts powered by a disk instability leading to a sudden increase in the accretion rate. The Digital Access to a Sky Century at Harvard (DASCH) Collaboration is preparing to digitize over 500,000 Harvard plates from the 1880s to the 1980s with limiting magnitudes ranging from B∼ 14 − 19. As a demonstration project, we have scanned more than 500 plates in the fields centered on the galactic open cluster M44. There are 21 CVsdoi:10.1063/1.2840410 fatcat:nsxao3c375cojbp6s5imalaqou
