We present the light curves of five variable stars discovered at the Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University Observatory. From the light curve shapes of the variables we see that GSC 4288 0186 and GSC 4019 3345 are detached, USNO 1500-00409928 is a W UMa-type eclipsing binary, while the others seem to be intrinsic variable stars. By using a 30-cm telescope equipped with an ST237 CCD camera dedicated for times of minima observations, we plan to perform systematic observations to discover new variable stars with the help of automatic data reduction techniques in the future.
