Re: (IAAC) Obj: STF 517 - Inst: Celestar 8" SCT, Fork mount



Depends on what you mean. If you are referring to a personal measurement 
of mine of the separation, I must confess that I always do not attempt 
measures. Sometimes the pair is too tight, faint, etc. Sometimes, I will 
admit, I don't want to bother and just enjoy looking at the pair. If I 
do measure the separation, I almost invariably put my results in me 
notes.
If you mean the PA as listed in some published list, that would be 
possible. Most of my double star measurements are for one of the "33 
Doubles" observing projects - see http://whuyss.tripod.com/33.html.
