I figured that this thread could be for naked eye observers as well as those using binoculars and telescopes. What do you most enjoy viewing in the night sky? I had a larger telescope (8 " Newtonian) at one point and I found the Ring Nebula and that was impressive (to me). Now I only have a 90mm refractor but I can still view the planets and resolving binary stars is fun. I'll just add that my favorite binary stars are Albireo in Cygnus because it's easy to locate, it appear to be a fairly bright blue star and then when resolved a smaller yellowish star pops out above and to one side. So it's a distinctive pair because of the different colorations. My other favorite is the famous "double double" binaries in Lyra. In this case you see two stars that are fairly close together, one over the other one. However each of those stars is a binary so with magnification one has another star that pops out vertically and the other star under magnification has another star that pops out horizontally. I'll add that the two main stars in Gemini are interesting because they are easy to find and one of them is a binary and the other one was one of the first stars to be confirmed as having a planet in that star system. Now it is known that most stars probably have planets as well but this was one of the first to be confirmed. So that's what I think about when I glance up in the night sky and notice that Gemini (Castor and Pollux) is visible.
