Re: (IAAC) Obj: 34 Orionis (Mintaka) - Inst: 8 inch Dobsonian Deep Space Explorer
Thanks! I do enjoy doubles at times, especially when there is a bright moon
and nebulae and galaxies are beyond my reach. Question...I have looked and
looked for the double to Rigel. Burnham's lists it as splitable with a good
six inch primary. I have an eight inch, and regardless of the conditions,
cannot split it. What gives here? Am I missing something?
