October 18, 2006: To help provide a consistent style for my double star sketches, the above sketch is a digital update to the original sketch.
This is a beautiful trio. The middle star is a deep orange. The stars look best with the 32 mm eyepiece–very brilliant, punctuated with the orange centerpiece. The 10 mm view (no barlow) looks nice too.

I have observed your wonderful sketches on the internet.
I would like to use one (gamma leoporis) in a double star presentation to our astronomy club.
Is this permissible? I will of course give you credit.
p.s great web site!
Hi Dee, thanks for the request, and comments on the site. I’ve sent you an email.
