Developing a Visual Variable Star Observing Program (CHOICE)

This is a description of a CHOICE course.

This course is designed to aid the visual observer in the selection of variable stars appropriate for their equipment, experience, observing location and other criteria. The course concentrates on guiding observers toward stars for which visual data holds the most promise for continued contributions to science. Participants also learn to use VSX, the LPV Bulletin and other tools to build their observing programs.
