Description:
STF100, also known as Zeta Piscium, is located along the Southern arm
of the constallation. This is a fine double for small scopes. The
separation is 23 arcseconds, easily split with my 33x eyepiece. The PA
is approximately 60 degrees. The primary has a recorded magnitude of
5.5 and the 'B' star is about 1 magnitude dimmer than the primary at
6.5. To my eyes, they appear amost identical. Both are white in colour.
