Re: (IAAC) Double Star Observation

 I'm at about the same stage as you in relation to double/binary observations.
I stumbled on to a great group of doubles observers who crank out a fine
little newsletter dedicated to all aspects of doubles.  It's cheap too. You
will find them at <A HREF="http://www.chara.gsu.edu/DoubleStars/tanguay.html">
The Double Star Library: Newsletter</A>.  Good luck.
