Double Cluster   2 comments

Went up on the roof after midnight Sunday night:  crystal clear skies.  Looked around with a pair of  7×35 binoculars.  Could count nine stars in the Pleiades.  With my voyager (f4.4, 114mm aperture, 500mm focal length. ball mount), more than forty stars.  Tried to find M31, scanning around, no luck.  I always start at Cassiopeia, and after giving up, scanned down from there.  Bang! the double cluster!  It looks great at 19 power, with a 2 degree field.  Moved still lower, ran into M34.  A very good night.
