Struve Catalogs

(two catalogs of double stars)

There are two Struve Catalogs of double stars, produced by father and son Friedrich Georg Wilhelm von Struve and Otto Wilhelm von Struve. The citation of a star as "Struve <number>" is ambiguous. Some of their discoveries were made at the Dorpat Observatory (Estonia), constituting the Dorpat Catalog.
