Visual Double Star Astronomy – Bob Argyle
I will start by describing the various types of double stars and why their observation is important. A brief history of visual discovery will follow and then my current long-term project will be described. Finally, I will talk about the current resurgence of interest in visual double stars among the amateur community and briefly suggest books and guides that might be of use to someone who wants to take up this activity.
