I'm a bit puzzled. Of course I have seen the double double plenty of times. It doesn't need a lot of magnification, and the splits are clear. I usually pay it a visit when I'm in the Lyra vicinity. I like it. I remember the first time a few years ago - the splits being aligned perpendicular to each other. But time and again, I see posts which somehow seem to suggest that the ability to see and split it is a special mark of quality of the scope (mostly refractors). I kind of got used to beginners proudly stating that they could clearly see the trapezium. That's me too not that long ago - so don't take it to be patronizing. But statements about the double double I also see from people who seem to have a bit of experience. Is it (supposed to be) difficult? or am I just lucky with my scope and eyes? Is there a freak chance that I have been looking at something much easier in close vicinity?
