Re: (IAAC) Obj: 34 Orionis (Mintaka) - Inst: 8 inch Dobsonian Deep Space Explorer
Okay, I have the directions, does anyone remember what color the secondary
of Rigel is? I will look for it the next clear night. Obviously, I am
missing something here. I even searched Hubble's photo gallery and other
places to find a picture of the pair. Anyone know where I can get a picture
of Rigel? Really, would like to send a picture to a friend whose son is
named after that star.:)
