The initial reason for studying Type II Cepheids (CWB) was for period changes, binarity or any other signs of change other than the pulsation. The GCVS contained 71 objects of this kind in 2012 when the wok started, and that list is now extended to 100 CWB and 26 CWB: objects. The photometric data for the 71 objects was collected from ASAS, AAVSO, CATALINA, LINEAR, SuperWASP, NSVS surveys. Surprisingly, there is a discrepancy in the classification of the stars in this list. A large percentage of these objects might not be not Type II Cepheids, some of them are classical Cepheids, RR Lyrae, some eclipsing binaries, there is even a dwarf novae.
