Thats a good haul Mick. Youve really taken to double star splitting, its addictive. Have you got Sissy Haas book?

 

No Phil, I have looked but it's so hard to get at a reasonable price.

A good session Mick!

Clear skies are few and far between at the mo! 

Never got into this star splitting lark, but it is becoming more tempting...👍

Cheers Stephen.

 

The supernova would be possible in your Lightbridge. I have seen a few when I had mine, all of them similar magnitude.

 

And star splitting is fun, shows you how how good your optics are.

Thanks Mick, I will have a go at the nova if clouds part over next few days. I was out on that night too!

 I went to the Sherwood Obs first for a couple of hours for a meeting, I got back about 09.45pm and went straight out with the 16” until just after 12.00, looking at spring gals, etc. but I was not aware of the nova until I read about it on here.

Thats a good price Baz, I got mine direct from S&T shop a few years ago when they started reprinting, it was twice that price I reckon.

Again another good doubles book is the Cambridge Double Star Atlas if you can get it.
