A re-discussion of CW Cep.
Photometric elements for CW Cep are determined from some 2900 individual observations, including 500 new ones presented in this paper. Comparison with the spectroscopic data yields masses and radii in agreement with theoretical models. The observed apsidal motion constant indicates that the presently available opacity calculations may be further improved. Key words: eclipsing binaries - apsidal motion - stellar models
