Differential Strömgren uvby observations from the Four College Automated Photoelectric Telescope (FCAPT) are presented for the metallic-lined stars 60 Tau and HR 1528 and the magnetic Chemically Peculiar stars HR 8216 and HR 8770. The first star, which is a $\delta$ Scuti variable, was found not to change its mean magnitudes. HR 1528 is best described as constant. A decade of photometry of HR 8216 shows that its b and y values have changed by -0.016 and -0.010 mag, respectively, over this time and now can be considered a photometric variable. For HR 8770 a period of 5.3923 days is derived with the photometric variability being generally in phase. The light curves also suggest possible surface abundance inhomogeneities.
