Here is my light curve for the primary eclipse of the Algol-type eclipsing variable U Cephei during the night of 2018 Jan 7-8.

Brightness estimates were made every 30 minutes or so using 11x80 binoculars.

Conditions were good - sky was cloud-free.

The near last quarter Moon rose midway through the eclipse.
