This is my first real use of AstroImageJ software for doing the photometry. Having previously used Muniwin I would strongly recommend any variable star observer to consider this excellent and FREE software. Richard Lee has produced an clear set of instructions for any potential user. Links to that and where to download AstroImageJ are currently on the opening BAA page. The image shown here is the curve fitting done using the Exoplanet Transit Database.
