posted Jun '21 doubles 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.


Here's a short selection of doubles from my life list, ones I find interesting and impressive. Hopefully not too challenging.

Double stars punch through bright skies so you can observe them any time, anywhere!

I look forward to hearing how you did! Share your log notes.

Frank spotted duplicates. The first two I had mentioned last month. Ooops. Oldmanitis strikes again.
