Thad and all who described the All Arizona Star Party - sounds like a good time
was had by all.

The double OSS254, aka WZ Cassiopeia, according to Hipparcos has a spectral type
of C5p (what ever that means) and is an unsolved variable that does not fall in
other categories.  I observed it my 8 inch (20 cm) back in '83.  Steve Coe was
also there along with some other observers.  I saw the double as blue and red!
Where the exclamination mark is from my notes indication, of course, great
excitement.  At the time I had been in astronomy for about three years.

Herschel 1844 has yet to be observed and, according to you notes, should be
added to my list.

Hope this helps,
