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.

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