Quote:Can we get some more info on ISK 1? Plotted but not explained; listed but scant info. I use all 4 editions of Starware for reference.
Quote: I enjoyed your recent article on the Cloudy Nights web site. I have seen the M57, under a dark sky, in my 8x40 Zeiss binoculars as a star-like dot. Using my 16x70 Fujis it becomes a tiny round fuzzy object, but no central hole was observed. I've not been too involved with variable stars, however I do intend to monitor those you mentioned in your article.
