doubles for Oct 2019

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



Here is your friendly reminder to observe double and multi-star systems. They are resistant to light pollution and Moon light. Below are listed some best viewed in October.

Double stars are fun, easy, sometimes challenging, interesting, colourful, and dynamic!

Be seeing you.
