I'm calling on all the fantastic imagers out there who may be able to help me with a double star observation.

As some of you know I am in discussion with the washington Double Star (WDS) catalogue about double star measurements.

As part of this I have been measuring 71 Orion (HJ2302) both physically & by using the Aladin image tool.

Whilst I was looking at this I had a close look at stars brighter than Magnitude 13.

2 stars appear to have companions that may not be logged on the WDS.

1 of the pairs are quite wide at 14 arc seconds but the other one is very tight at less than 2 arc seconds.

Would any of you excellent imagers be willing to try and image these pairs so a more definate observation can be made?

The stars in question are

TYC 01322-00768

TYC 01322-01193

The positions of the stars are

TYC 01322-00768

RAJ2000 06 14 38.84 "h:m:s" Right ascension (FK5) Equinox=J2000. (computed by VizieR, not part of the original data)

DEJ2000 +19 14 24.6 "d:m:s" Declination (FK5) Equinox=J2000. (computed by VizieR, not part of the original data)

TYC 01322-01193

_RAJ2000 06 14 47.28 "h:m:s" Right ascension (FK5) Equinox=J2000. (computed by VizieR, not part of the original data)

_DEJ2000 +19 10 45.3 "d:m:s" Declination (FK5) Equinox=J2000. (computed by VizieR, not part of the original data)

Cheers

Guys

I have returned to this post as I am hoping you can get an image of this sky area whilst at the SGL star party.

Bob Argyle the president of the Webb soc is interested to see what results we get.

Cheers

Ian
