Gary Poyners
Variable Star Pages

Gary Poyner. Variable Star observer.

These web pages are dedicated to the study of Variable Stars from a visual observers persepective, but I also include CCD data in some of the light curves.


The visual observations were all made from the heavily light polluted skies of Birmingham, England - the UK's second largest city. The CCD data has been obtained with the Bradford Robotic Telescope, the Open University COAST telescope and several of the AAVSOnet telescopes.


I hope you enjoy the site. And if you do live with light pollution, I hope that these web pages will show that interesting observations can be made regardless of the conditions!
