shot 27 Hya (Halifax)

The good weather we deserved in Ontario rolled into Nova Scotia. The Burke-Gaffney Observatory started off for me on a multi-star system, 27 Hydrae, by centring on GSC 05463 00209. I was hoping to split the B and C elements.

multi-star system 27 Hya in luminance

Luminance only, 1 second subexposures, 20 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, GIMP. North is up; east is left.

I was not able to split B and C from the backyard on 19 Mar '18. No problem in the image! South-south-west of B. It is clearly very faint compared to the second star. Similar in brightness to nearby magnitude 12 stars.
