IP Peg is a U Gem-type dwarf nova with a very high orbital inclination such that the secondary star eclipses the white dwarf primary, accretion disc and hot spot in each orbit. An observing project was set up by ‘The Astronomer’ (TA) magazine and the British Astronomical Association Variable Star Section to make visual and CCD eclipse observations of IP Peg during outbursts in the 1994/95 season.
