December 11, 2012;

Wee hours o’ the morning.
Temperature -6C
Seeing excellent.

52 Orionis: classic Dawes pair; both components magnitude +6, separation 1” with secondary to the southwest of the primary; split by a hair at 281x

32 Orionis: 1.3” separation, magnitude differential 1.3, secondary well resolved at 281x north east of the primary.

Eta Geminorum (Propus); enjoyed best ever view of secondary. Employed the Baader fringe killer to reduce glare of the bright, red giant primary. 1.6” separation, magnitude delta between components ~ 2.65. Beautifully resolved @281 diameters west of primary; definite bluish tint in secondary.

Theta Aurigae; components separated by 3.8” but huge magnitude differential(~4.5). A 7th magnitude spark well resolved just northwest of primary.

Lamda Cygni: 0.9” magnitude delta between components ~1.8. Pair unresolved at all magnifications (up to 350x). Classic figure 8 morphology orientated north to south.

Achromatic telescope resolves to theoretical limits with my average eyes.

Tonya; Triumphator!

Sensational shooting, I should say, Neil!

The Reverend Dawes would no doubt be thrilled from one end of his 96.5mm f/15.8 Dolland to the other .

Sailing Mare Nostrum, that's all.
