    What are the most common eclipsing binary stars and variable stars to observe with periods of a few hours?

    Im observing from Ireland.

    Thanks for the link. But I cannot seem to find any variable stars with periods of only a few hours. I need to find some in the northern hemisphere so I can make real time photometric measurements.
