Vesta + double star Algieba


Recommended Posts

Went out in the early hours to observe the asteroid Vesta make its close pass to the double star Gamma Leonis and 40 Leo.

Below is a drawing made at 02:30 UT. Algieba was split at 81x. Used 326x, and got the most beautiful view of the double star,

with faint diffraction rings visible around both stars.
