Managed to image some interesting stars lst night, including these two. Can anybody tell me what a KB class star is as that is all I could find Hoedus 1 described as?

Nice spectra.
Zeta auriga is a binary star - one star is K and other Is B which is where the KB comes from.

This star was the subject of a pro-am campaign in 2011. Link to the campaign page below:

Thanks John. I assume the campaign was while one star passed in front of the other. Will check out the website and see how different mine is.
