We report on the present status of an ongoing study of variability and proper motion of quasars based on Tautenburg Schmidt plates of the field around M3. The main aspects are: (i) a thorough investigation of variability of a sample of known quasars based on a large number of B plates with a long time baseline and the comparison of variability in U, B, and V; (ii) the variability - proper motion diagram for the objects with B ≲ 20.5 mag in this field and the loci of known quasars in this diagram. The primary aim of this work is to check the suitability of Tautenburg Schmidt plates for a combined variability - proper motion quasar survey.
