(IAAC) Re: Obj: Nu Draconis, Mu Bootes, Iota Bootes, Epsilon Lyrae
Lew and others,
I must confess that I rarely actually look at doubles just with the
naked eye: maybe I should try this more often. I ceratinly know of
people who have split Epsilon Lyrae with out optical aid, but I don't
think I ever have, and with my eyesight ( I am short sighted) I probably
never could, certainly not without my glasses on. I will try it out
next opportunity, and report back.
Clear skies all,
PS. Still no news on this micrometer and eyepiece, Lew!!!
