3 great doubles

These are for someone who has never seen a good double ..2 easy one Harder ..all beautifully coloured..

32 ERIDANI
Sao 130805
Mags 4.7,5.9 Separation 6.8"
Topaz Yellow Primary and Sea Green Secondary. GORGEOUS in any scope even a lil tak 60 and great if you want to show someone a nice easy colourful double.

GAMMA CETI
Main components..SEP 2.0" Tough one and needs a 70mm scope at least (could maybe just make out in 60 tak) as secondary faint hugging first diffraction ring; see it easily in my lovely Kunming United optics 80 ED F/ 7 with a 3.3mm TOE , and a piece of cake at 200x in my TS 115mm F/7 with a TAK T.O.E 4mm but more intense colours at lower powers with just a 6mm TMB11 Planetary or 5mm Delite appearing beautiful bluish green/yellow to most observers eyes.
Sep 2" mags 3.5,6.2 .
Sao 110707.

And 3rdly ..
ALMACH (GAMMA ANDROMEDAE).. Golden Orange /Blue
Mags 2,5.. separation 9.8".

Pics below so there easy to locate.
PS:EASY BRIGHT GALAXY M77 only a few degrees from Gamma Ceti!

Joe,
Thanks for your post. Gamma Ceti is one of my favourites - to me like a mini Antares but a bit easier. You have done well in seeing this in 70mm. I will try with my scope stopped down to see how low I can go!

Thanks John ..it was a great night when Mars was unbelievable in the 115mm ..so thought I'd try my now gone 72ed ..it was there lovely..80 ed easy enough..though it likes aperture for the colours to truly show ..so 4 inch scopes and above ..
Its a shame most don't even know it exists the separation , colour and brightness difference better to me as it rewards patience than other showpieces such as Izar, Alpha Herculis, Delta serpentis , 95 Herculis, Gamma Delphinus, Eta , Rho and Beta Orionis, Antares and Almaak etc
Looking forward to your attempts too.

With respect always.
Bigjoe
