The author presents a phased Light Curve (LC) of the companion of PSR J1723-2837, a millisecond pulsar, from photometric measurements with a 30 cm telescope. Variation in the LC agrees well with the orbital period and provides supporting evidence for tidal distortion of the companion in the compact binary system. Short period irregularities in the LC were discovered around φ ~0.25.
