ζ Piscium

Zeta Piscium and epsilon Piscium are three binocular fields northwest of alpha. Epsilon is a yellow-orange giant while zeta is a yellow-white giant.

Zeta is also a splendid double for small telescopes, with a disputed colour contrast:
      AB (pale yellow or white and yellow or reddish): 5.2, 6.3, 63, 22.8".

Also in this field is 77 Piscium (Struve 90) (two yellow stars) AB: 6.4, 7.3; 84, 32.8".


As you make your way along this western fish, one binocular field brings you to delta, and one more to a group of stars which make a distinctive arrow-shaped asterism: binoculars.

In this binocular field of view are two pleasant binaries, 35 Psc and 38 Psc:
      35 Psc (Struve 12) (yellow and blue): 6.1, 7.5; 147, 11.4".
      38 Psc (Struve 22) (two yellow stars): 7.1; 7.7; 235, 4.0".


Two fields southwest is iota Psc and the colourful variable TX Piscium.
