A fine sextuple double star new
      #5882157 - 05/24/13 12:09 PM Attachment (55 downloads)

On my way to NGC 5585 (which I couldn't see in my lightpolluted garden) I bumped on this fine double star. Color was added digital. Hope you like it.

Cute sextuple. I like the color contrast between the members. Isn't the faint star to the NE from the center a member too?

I guess you want to say the star SE from the center? I'm no specialist in doubles. All the information comes from a French magazine (Astronomie Magazine mai 2013 p. 68).
