Double Star (M40) – Deep Sky Videos

Posted on 2012/12/29

The optical double star M40 is perhaps the biggest disappointment in Messier’s Catalogue – so we’ve used our own star to liven up the video with a cameo from Sir Patrick Moore.

Also featuring Mike Merrifield and Pete Lawrence. Details on our speakers athttp://www.deepskyvideos.com/pages/contributors.html
