High-resolution imaging

There are some extremely impressive images and movies hereĀ http://chara.gsu.edu/astronomers/science-highlights/55-eclipsing-binaries

Watch the obviously tidally-distorted stars of Beta Lyrae stars orbiting each other and transferring mass between them.

See the disc of dust eclipsing the face of epsilon Aurigae.

Watch an Algol eclipse in progress.
