Observation Period Estimation


I had been observing a variable stars with my telescope and I have around 60 observation in total within a week and I know the general maximum brightness of my star from my observations. I would like to estimate the period of this star but I don't know how to approach this. I have tried to use VStar to get fourier analysis but that means not much to me because I don't know how to use the result to estimate the period.

I would appraciate any kind of help.
