Re: "Winter Albireo" Double - h 3945 In Canis Major new [Re: Sarkikos]

Last night I got a good view of h3945 in my WO 120mm f/7.5 refractor. I had a 12mm Nagler Type 4 eyepiece and the colors were striking. That would be 75X. I was starhopping but it was not difficult to find. I viewed Epsilon Canis Majoris as well last night.

Another striking yellow/blue pair is 24 Coma Berenices.

It's the second object on my list this evening. Herschel's Wonder star is first then Tau CMa cluster. I'm very far behind on my double star, triple star and star cluster work. N.A.S.A. keeps calling me for the latest data.

Herr Bonco,

We astronomers don't 'accidently find' objects. We discover them.

I prefer the wonder star, but both are striking.

Just as I got h3945 and the Wonder star in the eyepiece, the tree came into view. However both were magnificent anyway. I'll wait till next Winter. The skies will be crisper as well.

I have Jupiter's Ghost in view right now. Waiting for the neighbor's smoke to dissipate. He's a...

One of my very favorites. Can't believe that it took me so many years to hear about it (around 2006 or so).
