I was out with the binoculars last night, searching for doubles when I wandered into Cepheus. Strangely, this is a constellation that I had never visited before and I did not realise that it is a rich part of the sky, especially in the region of delta and zeta, a bit more sparse up towards the pole. I think a return visit will have to be made.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

The Garnet Star (Mu Cephei) is a big favourite of mine, Paul.
On some occasions I can see it perfectly easy with my own eyes.
It is lovely in scopes and binoculars too.
It is an M class star and not a carbon star.
Why not give it a go?
Or anyone else for that matter.

Clear skies,

Aubrey.
