consolidated doubles

Did another tidy of my double star lists...

Made sure my online life list was up to date. Reconciled this with Sissy Haas's book. Updated my check lists for the field (in Excel files).

Found a couple of interesting discrepancies. For example, I had viewed τ (tau) Ophiuchi, a suggestion from Sky and Tel, noted it in my life list, but had not found it in double stars. On closer examination, verifying the coordinates in Stellarium and the Pocket Sky Atlas, I learned that it was, in fact, in Haas's tome. As star 69 Oph. So, the book got a check mark and an AKA note; the web page got the AKA.

Up to 105 viewed now.
