I just pulled off from the shelf my binder of charts for the YSO stars. I'd like to suggest 4 stars that would be good beginner stars.
I printed the charts off of VSP on the AAVSO web site.
1. V856 Sco nice bright star mag range 6.8-8.0V print and use a "b" chart. Eta Sco is just off the chart to the left of the 4.9 star.
2. IX Oph 11.8-12.7p range. Print a "b" chart for finder. The 5.1 star is #36 Oph. Then print an "e" that has comp stars down to 13.5.
3. DD Ser 10.1-12.5p Print a "b" chart. The 5.9 star is #5 Aql. Then print a "d" and use this for your observations. It has comp stars to 12.5.
4. OQ Lyr 9.9-10.6p Print a "b" chart. Gamma Lyr is just off bottom of chart about 1 inch left of the FOV+3.0" note. Then print a "c" chart that has comp stars to 11.1 mag. Use the "c" for your observations.
