Yes Algol is a good target, but a naked eye one of course. Eclipse predictions appear in the BAA Handbook, or can be downloaded from the VSS web pages.A nice binocular star – and a good object to start with – is R Sct. You can get a chart for this from the BAAVSS web pages. One observation every 7 days is more than enough. It has to be one of the easiest variables to find and identify. Good luck to you Paul, and anyone else who has been reading these exchanges and decides to have a go for the first time – but remember it’s a bug that bites deep :-)Gary
