The step is visible clearly although measured points are scattered by air scintillation.

Diffraction fitting and photometry

Fig.3A    Fitting Karasaki's observation to diffraction simulation.

Fig.3B    Fitting Ishida's observation to diffraction simulation.

Elements of separation to the radial direction of lunar are 0.100(Karasaki) and 0.095(Ishida) arcsec. These are larger than expected value 0.059(Karasaki) and 0.056(Ishida)


Object Phenomenon Timemagnitude
Component B  Appearance 19h19m10.039s +/- 0.034sec 7.48
Component A Appearance   19h19m10.481s +/- 0.034sec6.90
Time difference 0.442 sec

Object Phenomenon Timemagnitude
Component B  Appearance 19h15m08.30s +/- 0.034sec 7.20
Component A Appearance   19h15m08.67s +/- 0.034sec7.11
Time difference 0.367 sec
The difference about magnitude between two observations might be generated by the large scintillation at the low altitude on these event.


   Calclation of astrometry

Fig. 4   Position of components.
Red cross is the component's position obtained from occultation observations.
Component's position angle is close to the catalogue, but separation is 1.7 times larger than catalogue.
