posted Mar '21 doubles suggestion list

Prepared my double star "bulletin." It is a short list of suggested targets. I shared this on the RASC Toronto Centre forum. I post here for all.


I hope you were able to get out last weekend. Great conditions, first time in a long time having a few nights in a row. The Moon brightened through the period but I knocked down a bunch of double stars, of course.

Here’s a short selection of double and multi-star systems from my life list for your observing campaign. I found them interesting. Is it too late for Orion? No!
