Introduction Since Paczy´nski’s original proposal1 gravitational microlensing has been proben to be a powerful tool for the detection of the dark matter component in galactic haloes in the form of MACHOs.
Microlensing towards M31: candidates and perspectives
The first case is more likely assuming a halo fraction in form of MACHOs above 20%.

Three of them (V739 Sgr, V3795 Sgr and VZ Sgr) were already listed as RCB stars by Zaniewski et al. (2005), but with wrong coordinates and thus also wrong MACHO identifiers.

While MACHO yielded photometry of some of our targets (OGLE did not observe our programme stars), the data showed too large scatter to prove useful, most likely due to the brightness of our target stars.
