This is my light curve for the primary eclipse of RZ Cas that occurred in the early hours of 2018 Jan 8th.

Helpfully, the clouds  stayed away and I was able to observe the whole of the eclipse, although Cassiopeia was becoming low in the northern sky towards the end (and about to disappear behind a neighbour's conifer hedge.

With the whole eclipse taking less than 5 hours, RZ Cas is an excellent target for beginners ... a much better target than Algol, whose eclipses last around twice as long
