shot HR 9074 (Halifax)

I wanted to revisit HR 9074 or Struve 3050, a triple in the constellation Andromeda. The C companion was not visually seen in my 8-inch. The Burke-Gaffney Observatory BGO robot imaged the multi-star system for me.

Luminance only, 1 second subexposures, 12 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.

First viewed on 2 Sep '19. While A and B are merged in this image, the C comrade is obvious, to the north-west, a good distance away. It appears to be in the magnitude 13 range.
