Epsilon Lyrae, Multiple Star System

I tried to attempt this, not so easy target, to split these very close (2.4 arcsecond) binary stars, which demands good seeing and good optical settings.

I decided to use Infrared filter, Astronomik 807 Pro, for this target since bigger wavelength is much less distorted by the atmosphere than the shorter visual radiation. Also kept the exposure as short as possible that my camera can provide me, that is 0.11 seconds.

Took 500 images and then used MaximDL to calibrate and process them and then combine them in AVI video format. Youtube upload did a really poor job with the quality of this video so i used Vimeo, which kept the resolution good enough to see the "double double" system easily.

I think i should try to image Epsilon Lyrae with my planetary camera as well. DBK21 mono can go at 60 frames per second so i can get many more images in a much less time limit, hence 'freezing' the good atmospheric seeing.

Try to see it in full screen so you can better appreciate the close binaries. Web has a lot of info about it so i am saving myself some time here :)
