    Thanks for sharing. These brief S&T articles are fantastic guides to new and exciting targets

    I agree rocdoc. I enjoy the S&T articles also. Brief and too the point. I like to catch carbons too. The contrasting color from the white blues looks really cool (I guess that it actually is in star terms).
    Thanks for sharing this link with us Jim.

    Take care,
    Jim

    I took a look at UX Dra and WZ Cas tonight with my 15x70s. WZ Cas looked really nice in the field. It kind of sparkles red. Perhaps it's the blue companion helping.
