Albireo - Double Star in Cygnus

Telescope: C11 @f/6.5
Camera: Pentax LX
Mount: G-11
Exposure: 20 sec.
Film: Fuji HQ200
Location: My backyard in SE Minnesota.
Note: Negative was scanned at 2000dpi on a Polaroid SprintScan and adjusted (curves) in Photoshop6.Photos don't do this double star justice. It is a beautiful pairing of red and blue stars. (Okay, it's not a star cluster; but I don't have a double star index)
