A system for performing CCD photometry employing an ST6 attached to a 2-inch f/3.6 lens is described. The system's advantages and problem areas are discussed, its performance is described based on over 4500 CCD images of eclipsing binary stars, and its prospects for photometry on more than one variable per image are explored.
