V350 Peg is a $\delta$ Scuti star discovered by Hipparcos (ESA 1997). During 35 nights between July 1997 and December 2001 some 7500 CCD V observations were acquired at the Monegrillo and Esteve Duran observatories in Spain. The new data show that this star pulsates in a close doublet of frequencies separated by 0.17 c/d ( $\Delta f/f=3$%) with similar amplitudes. More frequencies are excited but cannot be identified with certainty. The period as listed in the Hipparcos Catalogue is not confirmed.

Key words: $\delta$ Sct -- stars: individual: V350 Peg
