Hello!

I feel privileged, as anyone would, to have the opportunity to answerthis question.
I think that your idea is wonderful: to give the gift of a star, not a star chosen for you by a corporation,
but one for which you have set the parameters,
and one that your relative can appreciate in the night sky of southern Ontario. I make you this
promise: if you don't like the star I propose, I will gladly find
another one; and if you don't like my work in general, I will gladly
move aside to allow another Researcher to find a star.
Based on your question, I have looked for a star that meets the
following criteria: frequently visible from southern Ontario; bright
enough to see, at least with a little magnification, but not too
bright; and easy to find in relation to a bright star or
constellation. (At first, I thought I should also search for a star
that has a legend associated with it; but then I realized that mainly
the brighter stars would give rise to legends.) Also, since you have
some familiarity with the AAVSO charts, I have looked for a star that
is listed on those charts. (AAVSO is dedicated to variable stars, or
stars with changing brightness, so I looked specifically for that kind
of star.)
