    Default Need Help With Twin Stars



    A few days ago I was out at 4:00am for Jupiter/Saturn, and to check out my new az mount. As the Sun began to rise, I took a look at a star. It was very bright orange with a white companion/twins. It was rising from the east just before the Sun. It was very very beautiful. A few month from now, I want to make the twins a main target. Just need to know the name NGC# etc, so I can observe it again. Check out my Flickr images, maybe this was it https://www.flickr.com/photos/146413...posted-public/

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
