Thanks Phil.  I have seen and photographed the Pup many times but I can’t recall if I had enough presence of mind to get a video of it - I’m usually too excited just to see it smile.gif .  I will have to go through my files.  It would certainly be a prime candidate for a video - the view is very dynamic.

 

Here is a photo:

I went through my files and sure enough I did happen to have a video of Sirius and the Pup that I took earlier this year.  I have added it to my video web page.  The 30 frames per second frame rate makes the view choppier than what you would see visually but it is a good representation of why good seeing conditions are so important when trying to view this little guy.  Make the viewing window as large as you can.  The view is best toward the latter part of the video.

I tried to look at this video but it said the file doesn’t exist.  I thought Iota Cass was a triple star system? 
 

Nice collection of videos.

Hi Bill -  Thanks for the heads-up on the broken link - I think I have it working again now.
