more than a boatload

Wowzers. I analysed my Thursday night Vulpecula double star image, called Tycho 1612-753-1. And I found 18 undocumented doubles! What?! That's in the first image!

And I shot 18 images on Thursday night.

And I shot 18 more on Friday night.

That's 648 total possible double stars! Boom!

Be careful what you wish for...

Now, that said, I do think it won't be that... much. Thank the Universe.

That's because there's a lot of overlap in my images (which you can see in the mosaic so far). Also I think the image I started with is chockablock with doubles but some of the others are not, won't be.

Still... at half... that's over 300 double stars! Crikey.
