This star is listed as Type: Microlens.

I read this in https://www.aavso.org/vsx/index.php?view=about.vartypes.
"Microlensing events, which are a kind of extrinsic variables that, like supernovae, are a once in a lifetime event, and the star won't be observed as variable again."

So please could someone confirm that it is a waste of time observing this star.

Thanks

Non variable

That's correct, Stephen.
The star won't show variations again, it is a normal solar-type dwarf.
See that this kind of object is classified as N (Non-variable) in VSX.

Cheers,
Sebastian
