If you're a newcomer, you could ask yourself: and now what I have to do?
Ok, don't panic. First, click on the Database
tab and look at the left vertical bar: I prepared ready-to-use double star selections for you.
Just click on the names, for example the most populars doubles
list or the three stars systems
Next, I suggest to register yourself
choosing a username and password: once you're logged in, use the Setup tab to setup your site's preferences.
Remember to input your telescope's diameter (aperture): by means of the Dawes formula I can calculate the minimum separation between two stars permitted by your instrument, so you can filter out doubles too close to be seen.
This site is maintained during my spare time.
