We present observations of BL Lac from February 2001 through to May 2004. The observations were made with the 0.9 Southeastern Association for Research in Astronomy (SARA) Observatory in Arizona, the 0.8 Dark Sky Observatory (DSO) in South Carolina, and the 0.4 meter Buehler Observatory (BO) in Florida. We present the reduced observations as both a longterm and microvariability lightcurves. We analyze the resulting microvariability lightcurves using the Howell Method (Howell et al. 1988). We then present a longterm lightcurve of the observation with statistical analysis correlating events on the longterm lightcurve with microvariability.
