doubles for June 2019

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



Tempus fugit. Here we are suddenly in the middle of June with another full Moon around the corner. It seems at long last the weather is finally improving. I myself had a couple of great nights in the backyard chasing down double stars in a little 'scope. You can too regardless of location, light pollution, or interference from the Moon.
