A report on Apparent magnitude and Double star

Asteroid 65 Cybele and two stars, with their magnitudes labeled
Astronomers have mistakenly reported observations of a double star in place of J 900 and a faint star in the constellation of Gemini.

Since that time, the search has been carried out thoroughly and the entire sky has been examined for double stars down to a limiting apparent magnitude of about 9.0.

- Double star

For example, photometry on closely separated double stars may only be able to produce a measurement of their combined light output.

The position or cross-wire micrometer is an implement that has been used to measure double stars.

By 1951 an internationally standardized system of UBV-magnitudes (Ultraviolet-Blue-Visual) was adopted.
