Quote:Last evening I added 65 Piscium, Psi 1 Piscium and Zeta Piscium to the log, bringing my ALDS total to 5. The most attractive pair of this batch was Zeta Piscium, with a yellowish-white primary and a reddish-purple secondary. The sky was extremely washed out due to strong moon glow.

Pedro, are you sure that your doing the Astronomical League's Double Star Club? The reasion I ask is that Sirius is not on the AL Double Star List. As for the other stars, I completed the list using my 4" TV102 refractor. What are you using to observe these double stars?
I want to do more then just look.
Quote:I have a Tasco 7TE-5 2.4" F/16.7 on the way and am thinking about starting over on the AL Double Star Club list strictly using this refractor.
Has anyone else completed the list with a 2.4" 'scope?
Time spent looking at the stars is added to your life

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
