photometry of the large amplitude Scuti stars BP Peg, DY Peg, DY Her, CY Aqr and YZ Boo is presented. Since the data were obtained almost simultaneously in all filters, meaningful physical parameters have been derived for each star along their pulsation cycles using the calibrations from Nissen (1988) for A and F stars to determine the reddening and derive the unreddened photometric values. The utilization of the theoretical grids of Relyea & Kurucz (1978) has allowed temperature and gravity values to be determined. A comparison with previously reported values is presented.
