The Zuben-eschamali…. a old beautifuly Arabian-named emerald greenish blue star was lonely shineing that May night just a year ago when l firstly aimed fixed star with freshly constructed 13″ refractor at the highest power which can bears. For more than 2 decade l usealy like to see the fixed single stars of 3-0 mignitude range especially since from the time my 8″, 8.5″ glasses were used
and l looked Vega, Arcturus, Sirius, Capella, Alteir, or 2-3 mignitude stars like this one through 12,13″ glasses particularly at high power 950-1500x . l represented the Zubeneschmali as possible as l can do as you see here but the real thing was far from my humble art for in the 1480 magnification Nagler 2.5s window image l can explain nothing but it was eradiating beautifuly & magnificently, even l felt eerie emotions with the large but still sharpest star image ragely gushed out spokes of light bunches. To explain the 2.6 mag, 160 ly distant alien sun, l made some 20 pages eyepiece sketches with explanationes & l introduce here only one on the recent night Arcturus record as almost 2-0 mag suns to be looked similaly except colors , l named myself the 3 parts at the 1000-1480x images ( under 1000x the 3 parts could not be seen easily with its break downed parts ) as a Diffraction disk part(Airy disk) , 1st flames part , Spokes part …. one 1st flame exactly confrontations one spoke each other & total number of this star,s spokes was observed of 18-25 bunches at every 1/30 second because ca 3-4 rowes of radial spokes rotating each other in slight different directions that l could not represent it here for the spokes were so dynamic as each 3-4 rows spokes rotated once in a 1/50-1/30 seconds that may lie in a human eye,s limited captureing time spans so there l could observe the perspective among the 3-4 rows….
For the other explanations l have to omit as thousends words not equals to just you look through once.
With these observations of years l could more &more feel the fixed stars are alien suns like ours in not fictions (in papers or photos) but in reality, reality emotion… that l feel only just a few minutes for in a full one year,s automatic robotic diary life time span , stangely , in my private opinion , we humanbeing (include other species on earth?) have not yet the 7th sensor organ feel direct the existent emotions in cosmos.
l have to thanks for the pioneers who firstly sought the star parallaxes.
My humble instruments are imposing enough against the 5 billion doller HST at least when they aim fixed stars , if l seated in it with 15,000x power, it,ll show me nothing but a 1/10 diameter Airy disk of mine even the HST can,t show the Alien sun,s limb circle even in pinpoint size at all that tells the vastness of the interstellar space.
