One question I have is that some images show it as a point (which I understand), but when the resolution is better, some images show it as a blob, or an ovoid.
In the images I got (link to flickr images are in post #45 above), when I zoom in, Regulus appears as an ovoid, but even more so, it is brighter on one side than the other.
Does anyone know if this is due to Regulus being composed of more than one star? At best resolution, has anyone been able to discern one or more of the independent stars in Regulus?
I've been travelling, but when I have time, I will zoom into one of my images, and post an image of it (Regulus alone) on this forum. But the slight "ovoid" shape can still be easily discerned in what I already posted to Flickr.
(btw, this ovoid shape confused me for several days as I thought this body was a planet, and was confused because I did not think that a 300mm lens could pick up a planet's illuminated shape, nor could I understand why a planet would be more illuminated from a direction other than the sun).
Thanks for any advise on what I'm actually seeing.
