I wish to thank Dave Mitsky for encouraging some of us to hunt down a recommended carbon star each month.
For the month of October, he challenged us to seek after the carbon star RZ Pegasi.
I found it easy enough less than a degree north west of +5.6 magnitude star Pi 1 Pegasi at 40X. RZ Peg is dim enough at present. I have given it a magnitude estimate of +10.6 on the AAVSO website. It is of class C9; and I did find quite an intense orange. I used 40X and 112X with my 158 mm Williams Optics apochromatic refractor on Thursday night 22nd October. It is currently quite high in altitude over Irish skies.
