Photorealistic Image in Stellarium

Object: Stars

Site: Front Yard

Seeing: Good

Transparency: 3

Constellation: Leo

Magnification: 10x

FOV: 4.8 degrees

Observing Time: 11:40 pm – 11:50 pm

Notes: Distinctive pattern observed in the neck of Leo the Lion.  There were actually two pairs of double stars seen in the binocular FOV when aiming at this area.  Fascinating and I wonder if these two are the only pairs that can be seen simultaneously with such distinction under a 4.8 degree FOV. All stars were bluish-whitish, an interesting find overall.
