I had both some time and clear skies to image yet another colored binary.  I used the HEQ5, N250/1200, TSO ADC, ASI 224MC (cooled), home observatory, mountpusher setup well known by those who follow my posts, and the heavy processing described here. The main issue with these binary stars is that they are faint, and their companions are even more so, so even my mountpusher has a problem following the target — the mountpusher needs at least two-three frames per second to not beep and have the time to apply the needed corrections.
