 A somewhat cloudy night was Dec 28th. Exploring the rich fields of Lacerta and its weird assortment of obscure double designations.

TDT 3290 in the field (Tycho Double Star)

HD 209220 looks like an optical double, but no designation.

 V 443 Lac / MET 93 (Metchev)

https://www.stelledo...?iddoppia=97790

The label in SkySafari reads "V443 Lac AB 6.2" implying an easy double, but......
ITS A TRAP!!!  The B component is 19th magnitude! Nothing for us here, folks. But all is not lost. The field is sprinkled with groups and chains of faint stars surrounding , making a nice view, in my humble opinion.

HO 180 (Hough) / POP 23 (Popovic)  / HD 21105

This one is a challenge for larger apertures.

Again, the field is part of the rich Lacerta Milky Way.

TDT 3421 is also a challenge

A bright star in a rich field of many faint pairs.
