round 2 for Barnard's Star (Halifax)

Last year, on 23 and 25 May '19, I imaged Barnard's Star for the first time. The object in Ophiuchus is a star with very high proper motion. So I plan to image it for a few years to monitor its motion and maybe make a little movie.

Once again, this image in cented on HIP 87937.
