gathered data on IK Peg (Halifax)

When I learned of IK Pegasi as a potential outburst star, I thought of having a few looks every year. Or perhaps imaging it a few times when in season.

So I ordered the Burke-Gaffney Observatory to aim there. To be precise, I aimed at Tycho 01671-0804 1. IK Peg is also known as HR 8210.

IK Pegasi in luminance

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

First viewed this target on 2 Sep '19. Well, there we go. Captured officially. The brightest star, near the top of the image.

Neat faint tight double in the middle of the image, in that big flying V.
