Almach / Gamma Andromadae, a quadruple system in the Andromeda galaxy
#8 in the Astronomical Leagues Double Star observing program
This pair is my favorite of the observing program so far. Their color and relative sizes are very beautiful, easy to find and well worth the time - I'll be revisiting these soon. They are the type of object that should be near the top of your list when deciding what to show newcomers to astronomy!
