One of my favorite doubles. It can be seen naked-eye as the faintest
star in the "head" of Draco.
This is a great pair to view under low power. Both of the pair are the
exact same magntude (around 5.0) the same size and the same color (a
pretty baby yellow). The pair is wide and therefore easy to see with
the smallest scope.
