145 Canis Major145cma

Double Star in Canis Major
Mags 4.80 and 5.95

HIP 35210
The Winter Albireo, Herschel 3945

Wow, what an amazing colour contrast this easily split wide double star is
Know as The Winter Albireo after Albireo, the archetypal colourful double
The primary, at Mag 4.80, is a beautiful dark golden orange and it's companion, at Mag 5.95 is a deep bright blue
Made even better by the fact that they sit in a very sparse FOV at all zooms so appear to be sitting on black, great!
