- Double Stars (UMa) -

This is just a small selection of evident, quite recommendable double stars. Some of these I have 'found' during starhopping.

And (2) Boo (1) Com (1) Del (2) Psc (1)
Aql (3) Cas (1) CVn (2) Her (2) Tau (5)
Ari (2) Cep (1) Cyg (3) Oph (1) UMa (1)

41 Lyn (**)

Name: 41 Lyn, S598
Type: **
Constellation: UMa
Coordinates: 09h28m39.99s / +45°36'06.5"
Components: AB / v5.5 mag - v7.8 mag / 71.4" / 159° / 2010
This star has the designation 41 Lyn but is assigned to UMa. At the time, when Flamsteed numbered the stars, the constellation boundaries were not exactly defined. Another example is 10 UMa, which is located in Lyn today.

B 40mm, 8x, Bortle 7, NELM 5.0, SQM-L 19.2
Fairly well separated with fainter component.
