Variable star observing is one of the most popular amateur astronomy activities in Hungary. Traditionally the visual observing technique has been most common, but the first results in CCD photometry have appeared showing the future of observing fainter variables with higher accuracy. The total number of visual observations received yearly exceeds 40,000 (thanks to a few very enthusiastic members of the HAA-VSS), which is an exciting sign of the continuous interest among the amateurs.
