two new binary quasars!

Tsalmantza, Roberto Decarli (MPIA), and I discovered two new binary quasars today. One we found by our fitting, and one by looking for quasars judged to be galaxies by the spectroscopic pipeline (the reason these are sometimes binaries is because the broad lines can be shifted very far from the narrow lines, tricking the pipeline). Given that there are only four binary quasars known previously, this was a pretty good day's work.

  1. What are coordinates of two new pairs?
