Current Observations

Visual Observations of variable stars are observed on every clear night at the Tetoora Road Observatory. My current observing program consists of monitoring in particular, Cataclysmic variables (CVs), some suspect Mira’s, planetary nebular, unique stars, recurrent novae and unstudied star systems.
