captured nu Cet (Halifax)

BGO captured ν (nu) Ceti. Centred on GSC 00052-0838. A double star from the RASC Observer's Handbook.

I had hoped to catch in the net another pair nearby, to the far east. But PPM 145753 aka PLQ 34 is off frame.

double star nu Ceti in luminance

Luminance only, 2 seconds subexposures, 20 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint. North is up; east is left.

nu Cet B is the delicate dim star to the left or east of the primary. SkyTools says it is 8.1 seconds of arc away.
