DSSI image of star pair occulted by Orcus’ satellite Vanth

Gemini South DSSI image of star pair occulted by Orcus’ satellite Vanth. Image reveals bright primary star in the center of the image and a companion at upper right (approximately 2:00 position). The other “star” at lower left (8:00 position) is an artifact of processing. This image consists of 1000 seconds of data subtracted to remove atmospheric distortions to reveal the close binary pair responsible for the Vanth double occultation.
