16 Cygni -- Double Star in Cygnus
The next time you visit the Blinking Planetary Nebula (NGC 6826) in Cygnus, checkout
the bright, pretty, yellow double star less than a degree to the west. With a wide separation
of 40 arcseconds, 16 Cygni will split at low power in even the smallest of telescopes.
The 16 Cygni star system also contains a red dwarf star and at least one extrasolar planet
(2.38x Jupiter in size). Neither are within reach of my telescope.
The other apparent dimmer double star below and to the right of 16 Cygni is a chance
alignment and they are not gravitationally bound to one another.
