New observations of 16 complete cycles of the pulsating variable star BL Camelopardalis have been obtained. The data were secured in Oct 1993, Feb 1994, and Oct 1994 at KPNO using the Burrell Schmidt telescope and S2KA CCD detector. The new data have been combined with archived data to derive a more accurate period for the star. The data were also examined for cycle-to-cycle changes in the pulsation curves that would reveal the presence of a beat period. We discuss these two items and our data reduction techniques.
