I was looking at Arcturus Sat night and noticed Stellarium has Arcturus listed as a double star. I searched online and could not find any information on anyone's experiences splitting Arcturus. I could not even find any information on its companion star, its magnitude or separation distance.
Has anyone had any experience splitting Arcturus or is this not a visual double that can be split? If you did split this star, what magnification is required to do so and what type of scope did you use.
By the way, Napoleons hat is a fun object in the same field of view as Arcturus.
Thanks in advance for any information on this.
