Is there any software or website that predicts EB eclipses? For example, I want to know the next eclipses of any EB, I put the name, the current date and time, my location and it gives me the next eclipses of that search.
You can go to VSX and put the name of the star in the search box. When the info for the star comes up there is an ephemeris that you can click on that will tell you the upcoming minimums for that star. I also use this site to determine time of minima for eclipsing binaries: https://www.as.up.krakow.pl/ephem/
Thank you very much, your tip was a great help.
Try the program "EB Min" which can be downloaded from https://www.variablestarssouth.org/software-by-bob-nelson/.
Thank you very much, I didn't know about this software yet. I will explore it more
You might want to look at this. This interface is a bit confusing ... at least in the beginning but you can find all the exoplant transits for your specific location
I have found this to be pretty accurate, but check against VSX. The advantage is that you can get an idea, by constellation, what minima might be occurring on any given night.
Thank you very much, Ed. This software is perfect. However, some stars are not found, like BL Tel, for example. Is there a possibility to add more catalogs and update the list?
