Comment : After I took the photo of STT 307 I want a double star with a more challenge, two stars that are closer to each other. I found the object HU 662 that has a separation of 4". Can my low resolution telescope that is specially built for wide field resolve these two stars?

As you see there isn't easy to see the two stars with this low resolution, just a little bulge on the lower right side. My system is under sampled, with Drizzle or Super resolution technique I can get better resolution from these photos.
