Re: (IAAC) Obj: Alpha Ori - Inst: 10" F4.8 Equatorial Mount GP/DX
Er, actually Barry (1) has it correct here,
a star with a line through it horizontaly is indeed a double, and Alpha Orionis
is a double, Last observation 1983, PA 278, Sep 0.5" Mag A 0.5, Mag B 14.5
(WDS). So with such a faint companion and at such a tiny seperation you would
have some difficulty in actually getting it !!

This is the other Barry again. I am pretty
new at this stuff also so I
could be wrong. Please feel free to correct me if
I am wrong. It seems
as though you are trying to split stars that are
not list as double and
may be confusing other stars that you are
1. Alpha Ori, aka Betelgeuse is not a double.
Ori, is Bellatrix is not a double but if you are identifing the
stars by the
Greek Alphabet it would be easy to confuse the Gamma symbol
with the upside
down Y looking thing that is Lambda which is a double.
If I am mistaken
please feel free to correct me.
