interesting JDSO articles

Downloaded a couple of articles from the Journal of Double Star Observations web site.
  • DSLR Double Star Astrometry Using an Alt-Az Telescope by Frey and Haworth
  • A New Double Star in Andromeda by Bryant
Both from the July 2014 issue. Interesting... I look forward to reading this articles.

If double star imaging with a DSLR can be done accurately on an alt-az mount, then it means I could get some good work done when at the CAO using the NexStar 11. It's my preferred 'scope when the C14 is not available.

And I'm very curious about the "discovery" of double stars. I want to understand the processes and how one analyses observations and then goes about reporting them. I think I've found a couple myself but I don't know what the next steps are.
