I'm Wouter, I have my observatory in small bright belgium.
I'm entirely new to variable stars and photometry. I'm currently mainly an astrophotographer by would like to give variables a try. Mostly to put some variation on the menu.
My current equipment is a 190m f/5.3 reflector, SBIG ST2000xm and a PM-MX mount.
What would be a good way to start? Is there additional equipment I need, what software,... etc. I'm quite new to variable star observing so this opens a new world to me.
