monthly doubles for Mar 2019

Issued my double star "bulletin" for March 2019. It is a short list of suggested targets. I shared this on the RASC Toronto Centre forums. And I post here for all.



Days are getting longer and sun is getting higher. Hopefully weather more conducive to astronomy is around the corner. If you get chance to do some quick backyard observing, here are some double stars for your consideration.

A couple of hints... α Lyn is great triple as is HD 75646. STF 1126 is also a triple but the AB is rather challenging. HD 60997 comes with a couple of surprises!

I look forward to hearing how you did! Let me know if you have any questions.
