worked on some doubles (Blue Mountains)

Ian W and I chased down some double stars with his 8-inch Dobsonian. He let me use his ASUS netbook and SkyTools software.

It was a very cool evening. Could have used some gloves.

We viewed (and enjoyed) Asellus Tertius, ι (iota) Boötis, HD 234127, δ (delta) Boo, Alkurhah, HD 213224, and δ Cephei.

I used the Re-observe status on 44 Boo, HR 8357, and Scheat. We were not impressed with these targets.
