Double stars are among the best-kept secrets in nature. Yet even in a small scope will reveal that hundreds of bright stars are actually double or multiple suns. When fainter stars are included, tens of thousands turn out to be double. All the entries in Double Stars for Small Telescopes are considered by the author to be the most attractive and interesting of the more then 102,000 pairs listed in the Washington Double Star Catalog, the world's principal database of double- and multiple-star information.
