monthly doubles for May 2019

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


Whoop. Snuck up on me, this impending full Moon. :-( Rather than mope, check out double stars! :-) Double and multi-star targets you can observe them any time, anywhere, regardless of light pollution.

Here's a selection of doubles I find interesting and impressive. Targets for May:
