I'm kinda new to double stars. Tonight I tried Lambda Arietis. I've been working on collimation. Anyway, tonight at 8:30 est, with the 32mm EP (31x) there was a star at 7:00. Is it possible this was the double star? at 31x? Stellarium shows a star just below Lambda Ari at 5:30 or so. I could not see that one. Every thing else looked like what I seen at the EP. Maybe Stellarium it not always correct?

Apparently it is a double. Good catch.

I imaged this one with a lowly 6" f/5.6 using a webcam. Here is link to that record.
