A hazy 'clear' night last night, thought I would have a quick session of doubles and variables before bed.
First starting point was STF 2499 VULPECULA, an 8.8 and 9.1 pair with a seperation of 2.6". I think the haze may have helped steady the image as the secondary was quite crisp at 270x.
A nice wide system next, J 2959 SAGITTA, 7.8, 11.8, 93.2", so nice and wide. B was quite faint what with the high thin cirrus cloud, but was visible at 270x. C was not visible at all, and after much squinting into the eyepiece I gave up, I was tired in my defence.
Back into the fox with STF 2457 VULPECULA. 10.1 and 10.2, with a sep of 10.2". Lower powers did not show anything, but adding the barlow gave a nice view of B at 270x.
My last if the session was STF 2455 VULPECULA AB: 7.4, 9.4, 9.6". AC: 7.4, 12.3, 20, 99.6" a nice triple with C only seen due to its distance from the primary.
I failed to split 16 Vul yet again, thats going to be a thorn in the side that one, and HDS 2708 SAGITTA, which has a seperation of 6.0", but would not split at any magnification, one of them nights I suppose.
The rest of the evening was variable observing which is easier with no drive as you need a wider fov.
Fingers crossed for clear skies over the weekend,
