We discuss the possibilities of investigating the semiregular and irregular light change found in evolved late type giant stars with photometric and visually obtained (amateur) data. Period analysis has been done on light curve data from both sources for a sample of semiregular variables. The results are compared to test the ability of visual data to show the frequency contents present in these variables. We find that both sources of data complete each other, as fitting the fine structure visible only in the photometric data needs long-term visual monitoring to guarantee the uniqueness of the fit.
