posted Nov 2020 doubles

Prepared my double star "bulletin" for November 2020. It is a short list of suggested targets. I will share this on the RASC Toronto Centre forums. And I post here for everyone.



Here we are tumbling into November, trying to stay within our postal code (whatever that means), lamenting the bright Moon. Well, you can enjoy some quiet solo time at the telescope in the backyard or driveway. View those proximal planets. And view always interesting and evocative double stars.

I love how double stars fight light pollution—and win! Can you split them? What subtle colours do you see? How different are they in brightness? I hope you will share your double discoveries with us.

Be seeing you.
