multi-star checklist

Today I made checklist of interesting double, binary, and multiple stars and finally loaded it onto the palmtop computer.

I coddled together data from the books All About Telescopes, Astronomy Data Book, and Skyguide and the NightSky Sep/Oct 2005 magazine.

As I was winding down, I came across an excellent "doubles" web page at the Belmont Society [ed: gonzo!]. It not only lists many interesting multiple stars, by constellation, but it does it in colour. So you get a sense immediately of what you may expect to see.
