I'm just starting to monitor variables and reporting to AAVSO.
Which of the following is the best strategy for making useful variable star observations - using the basic assumption that I'm only monitoring stars on the AAVSO LPV list.
Strategy 1: I'm in SW Utah (Lat 37N). Should I just focus on monitoring circumpolar variables (53+ degrees) so that i can measure them continually through the year?
Strategy 2: Or is it more valuable to monitor variables further south because I have a little better range than observers further north than me - even though I would not be able to continually monitor them?
Thanks for your advice
