This was a tricky star-hop from iota for my. There were no bright, obvious
patterns to follow. However, I was able to locate a faint triangle near iota, 
and next to that 2 other stars that together made up a flattened, inverted W.
From there I located another triangle with an extra star at the vertex, and near
to this was 29. This double was easily split even at  lower power. Both members
appeared white.
