Polaris, Most people don't believe me when I tell them it isn't the brightest star in the sky...

Thanks everyone. I found some sketches I did with the AZ 70 last year that I completely forgot about. It's amazing how much I got out of a $20 scope, I still take it out sometimes.

An excellent collection of double star observations. You have provided a nice assortment. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
