Observing Notes

Captain William Henry Smyth
Oct 27, 1835    No. 6 The Crescent, Bedford, England (map)
150mm f/17.6 refractor by Tully 1827

A coarse triple star, in the weapon hand of Perseus. A 6½, yellow; B 12, bluish; C 9½, greenish. An imaginary line projected from δ Cassiopeæ to α Persei, will pass just below χ, at one-third of the distance. This is a multiple object, among rich fields, where the intermixture of greater and less individuals renders the vicinity very favourable for testing the light and definition of a telescope.
