Here is a selection of light curves for some of my favourite variable stars!  Most of the plots only go back as far as 1990, which is when I began to record the observations in an electronic format, although some do go back to the 1970's.   I eventually hope to have all my data (back to 1975) entered onto the PC, which will extend the light curves considerably....but it's a long, slow process!


The light curves were created with MS Excel and PLOTVAR plotting program written by Dave McAdam.   Most of the data shown is visual, obtained with the telescopes shown in this web site.  Light curves for many of the magnetic CV's are CCD, both unfiltered and V-band.  These were obtained with both the AAVSO Sonoita Research Observatory 35cm SCT & 50cm Newtonian telescopes and the Bradford Robotic Telescope/COAST. 


On most occasions, the light curves are updated at the beginning of each month.
