Zeta Lyra is really easy to locate from Vega. It forms with Vega and Epsilon
Lyra an easy to recognize triangle.
The components of this double star are wide open and the split is very easy
using only 25x. At this power both components appear with the same color.
Using 100x, colors appear sligthly blue for the main component and maybe
white-yellow for the secondary. I confirm these details at 200x.
