Abstract

 

Within the past few years amateur astronomers in the United States have demonstrated a marked increase of interest in the observation of eclipsing binary (EB) stars, and the AAVSO EB program has been a major focal point for this activity. Considerable experience has been gained in the various phases of the conduct of this program. This paper discusses some of the problems faced by the individual observer, how he can overcome them, develop his observing skills and assure he obtains the most accurate data possible.
