Darrell,
I have been carrying out double star measurement for the last ten years using various cameras/scopes for imaging, and Reduc for the measurements. Over that time a number of my results papers have been published in both the Journal of Double Star Observations(USA), and the Webb Society Double Star Section Circular (UK). I have also been involved in the discovery of three new pairs.
If you are interested in taking the next step on from enjoying their visual beauty I would be happy to help you where necessary.
After spending some years simply admiring the views with my 6" refractor the bug really bit me and I took the next step of recording and publishing my results.
Filar micrometers are not that common and I found modestly priced cameras etc. were quite suitable. A relatively small $$ outlay can get you on the way to carrying out scientifically valid research.
regards,
Graeme
