Hi everyone,
In a slighly cloudy evening on 18th September, searching holes through the clouds, I have been able to observe one of most famous double star Albireo or beta Cygni. The seeing was very good and giving me a stationary image.
I have wanted o make a sketch of this spectacular object and its amazing colour contrast.
I hope you like it.
Bye.

  1. This sketch reminds me of my last observing night, looking for the brazilian comet Jacques close to Albireo. I couldn’t find the comet, but had a nice view of this impressive binary system.
