How many stars can you see when you look in the region under the handle of The Plough/Big Dipper? Chances are only one shows up – this one – Cor Caroli in the constellation Canes Venatici. In this image North is to the right. Image processed by Noel Carboni who expertly removed a rather nasty lens flare caused by Cor Caroli – and photons grabbed by Greg Parker at the New Forest Observatory.
