    How many stars can you (personally) separate out of Sigma Ori?
    If I even get a clear sky again that I can take advantage of this is one of the things that I want to work on. I have a lot of different gear which should provide different results.

    Hey if you zoom in on it in Stellarium it looks like you separate out like seven or eight stars.

    I was trying to think of other variables also. The above video might not be starting from naked eye. I think it looked like in Stellarium one of the side stars might be a double as well.

    The actual cluster are the related stars, others in the area that you see on Stellarium may be in front/ behind and from a different star grouping or as you say either actual doubles or optical doubles.
