Hi everyone I have taken part of bootes constellation and I have used a platesolver to enhance my original image and I have got another image of a double star but not sure as the platesolver could not find the star.
Thanks

Without knowing the field of view of the image, and some other stars to give it context the double star could be anywhere. If you are sweeping the sky for interesting objects, and find something, you could try checking its position with your finderscope.

Bootes is a bit devoid of interesting objects, but if you are in that area of the sky, try running your astronomical fingers through Berenice's Hair! Photographing that area is always fruitful.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

Epsilon Bootis is a well-known double star and it could be it.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

Hi Thanks for the info,I will next time look through the finder to see where it is in the sky and take a note of the constellation to work it out.
