Dear Visual Observers,
Someone suggested to me that perhaps we should put together a list of "Legacy Eclipsing Binary Stars", like the Legacy LPVs or Legacy CVs. I'd like to know your thoughts on this. Eclipsing binary observing is my specialty. AAVSO doesn't seem to be publishing visual observations of eclipsers anymore, but they do welcome them to the International Database. My visual observations are actually being published now by the Variable Star Observers League of Japan.
I would be happy to put together a list of say 30 "Legacy Eclipsing Binary Stars". Perhaps Sebastian can add more for the farther southern hemisphere.
I need your input before I do this. If there is no interest, then I will not bother. This was a suggestion by another AAVSO member.
