tried for OSO 95 (Halifax)

Tried for OSO 95 in Ophiuchus.

Another old entry in the WDS catalogue.

WDS ID: 18124+0524OSO  95
number of entries: 2
observed both times: 1994
PA: 202
first sep: 11.1
last sep: 11.2
magnitudes: 10.43 and 18.3
precise: 181221.87+052404.4

I could not find an object in SkyTools at this location. I aimed to Tycho 00439-0972 1 aka HIP 89215.

region surrounding double star OSO 95

Luminance only, 2 seconds subexposures, 12 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.

I dunno.

The only bright star, mag 10.4, in the 'hood is this HIP star.

The software does not show a mag 18 star to the south-south-west...

Will need to shoot longer to get the partner star.
