images HD 186224 (Halifax)

I asked the BGO robot to image the double star HD 186224 (by centering on SAO 105169) in Sagitta. There's the diamond kite with short tail.

multi-star system HD 186224 in luminance

Luminance only, 5 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; left is east.

I wanted to revisit this target as I had trouble spotting the D star in the quad. The image shows a star in the same location as SkyTools 3 Pro says the D should be. Pretty easy.


This image includes HD 350461 to the north-east...
