I must admit that I haven't paid that much attention to the Binocular activity and stars that Sebastian Otero has put together. I had some free time today, so I checked it out. My gosh, Sebastian has put together a wonderful list of stars. The VSP is now set up to plot star charts marked "Binocular Star". Make sure you also choose the "a" scale. You can adjust your limiting magnitude, but the default is 9.0. many you do not even need anything dimmer than 7.5 comp stars.
So, I printed out probably 75 charts or more. Many of these stars I have never heard of before. Most are semi-regular stars. They are perfect for visual observers. The nice thing is; you don't even need a telescope.
Download Sebastians spreadsheet with all the stars named. Print as many as you want. What a nice and inexpensive way to contribute to variable star astronomy.
My compliments to my good friend Sebastian!
