caught HD 114146 (Halifax)

BGO imaged the double-star HD 114146 (also known as Σ1723) in Canes Venatici. The A and B stars are quite close in this image, touching or merged. Alas, not a great image.

double-star HD 114146 in luminance

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

My double star life list showed two entries. One that indicated it was not viewed; another than showed it was. So, unfortunately, the old entry sent me on a bit of a goose chase. Consolidated the two log entries.
