Tau CMa, HJ 2362 in NCG 2362

Here's another system, HJ 2362 in Canis Major, that's in the AstroLeague Multiple Star Observing Program. Stelle Doppie covers it here. I did this sketch back in December of 2015 with a C925/CGEM at the summit of Haleakala on Maui. This is a triple star, Mags. A, 4.4; B, 10.2; C, 11.2; D, 8.2. Seps are AB, 8.3"; AC, 14.2"; AD 84.8". PAs are AB, 90°; AC, 87°; AD, 77° This system is in the middle of an open cluster, NGC 2362.
