59 And (**)

Name: 59 And, STF222
Type: **
Constellation: And
Coordinates: 02h10m52.83s / +39°02'22.40"
Components: v6.0 mag / v6.7 mag / 16.6" / 37° / 2016
B 40mm, 8x, Bortle 7, SQM-L 19.0
Separated, but very tight. I used a tripod.

120mm f/5, 18x, Bortle 6, SQM-L 19.3
Well split with noticeable difference in brightness.

8" f/6, 100x, Bortle 4, NELM 6.0, SQM-L 20.9
SQM-L 20.4: Nice and evident double star, easy to split. About 12 arcminutes NE there is NGC828 (v12.3m),

Beautiful double star, relatively tight with visible difference in brightness.

BU483 (**)

Name: BU483
Type: **
Constellation: And
Coordinates: 00h09m03.67s / +40°50'34.30"
