    Default Doubles Near Procyon



    Here's a list of easy doubles near Procyon (Alpha CMi). Some of these have mag 12 companions, so they should be challenging, since that's about the limit of a 4-incher (which is one of my criteria for the list).

    Enjoy!

    I have added this to the 'to do' list Jerry. Thank you. The wind is so strong here right now that everything would probably look like doubles.

    Hey Bill, it's windy here, too. I can't seem to get any decent observing time. Compiling these lists gives me something to do in the mean time.
