Omicron-1 Cygni and More Double Stars from the September Observing List

This month's Indiana Astronomical Society Novice/Urban Observing List is more difficult than last month. It includes a lot of double and multiple stars that I just can't resolve with my camera lens alone. I'm going to have to get better with my scope to find some separation in these stars.

I was able to pick a few off the list, however! I should also be able to get the Messier objects (maybe a second attempt at M15 since I already have that one from earlier). I photographed Gamma Delphini and Beta Cephei but couldn't find separation - they just looked like regular stars. I don't think that counts, so I'm going to wait and try to get photos through my scope.
