Mathew Wedel seems to have taken over for Gary Seronik, writing the
“Binocular Highlights” column in Sky & Telescope. His July recommendation
is the “False Albireo,” Alpha and 8 Velpeculae, a binocular double not far
from the real Albireo.
My favorite is another binocular blue/orange double at the opposite end of
Cygnus. Omicron 1 and 2 are located between the tail (Deneb) and a mid-wing
star, Delta Cygni. Compare Albireo through a telescope to the Omicron pair

PAS binocular enthusiasts,
It would be great if PAS put together a list of binocular objects for
people to enjoy. I have attached a short list of 12 objects, but I know
that you probably have several more to add to the list.
Sky and Telescope has a book of 99 bino objects, but many of them look
like tiny out of focus stars. I hope we can list objects which we have seen
and enjoyed looking at with binos.
When you get a chance, please add to the list and send it to me. I will
then send the final document to everyone.
I have attached the telescope list which we put together a few months ago
and we are handling out at telescope workshops.
I hope that soon we can put the bino list, the telescope list, and a
document describing Bortle readings at some of our observing areas, on our
Howard will be leading a binocular star gazing session Oct 22nd in
Carefree. Although the fall doesn't have a lot of bino objects it has some
great ones, and if we start viewing just after dark, we can see some of the
late summer objects and if we stay up close to midnight we can see some of
the winter bino objects. It should be a fun night sky training session.
I hope to get a few more bino objects from some of you. Take care, Sam
