caught winter showcase pair (Halifax)

The Burke-Gaffney Observatory robot imaged double-star HR 2764. aka h 3945 or 145 Canis Majoris. Well known as The Winter Albireo.

double-star Winter Albireo in luminance

Luminance only, 1 second subexposures, 12 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.

The image looks pretty good despite poor seeing and a nearly full Moon. 

First viewed (stumbled upon) this target on 26 Mar '11.


Made the colour image on 21 Dec '18.
