imaged Miram (Halifax)

The BGO robot imaged Miram in Perseus for me. This should be a very colourful multi-star system.

multi-star system Miram in Perseus luminance

Luminance only, 3 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; left is east.

This was a target from my View Again list. I had not split C and D in the past. That is easily done in this image—the faint pair to the west of the primary. C is the brighter outer star; D is the fainter inner star.


Assembled in colour.


Oh ho. While reviewing data from the WDS, I found more stars!

E is the bright star beyond B. Quite far.

F is the dim star to the north-north-east. It's the same distance away as CD.
