DJ, rather than a Raleigh or Dawes split, did you notice some elongation? I'd urge you to keep at it.

I can't say that I saw anything other than one star with any certainty. The image just wasn't steady enough for a sub-arc second double, indeed, half an arc second at that.

I will try again if I get an uncommonly good night, though!

Ah, yea, guess the seeing really has to cooperate. I wish you luck on it in the future.

If the clouds hold out I'm going to try for it again this evening. I've had two clear nights in a row but the seeing has been a mess. A .5" double is rather difficult for my area but I have to give it one more shot.

I just resolved it in not so great seeing with my 12 inch. Very cool..

Nice tight double with a little color. The best kind.
