Last night under very good seeing conditions her in Connecticut I was treated to a spectacular view of Jupiter using my 16" Newtonian. I did notice a neat double star approx 120 minutes south of Ganymede. The stars were very similar in brightness. Difficult to estimate the magnitudes given brightness from Jupiter but I would estimate mag 10 or fainter. I would estimate the separation to be around 10sec. Anyone else notice this double?
