Description:
While searching for 16 Cygni, I came across this pattern: 4 stars
forming a "mini-Sagitta". In the eyepiece, they appeared thus:
                                               * 31804 (blue, fainter)
                                               * theta (orange)
                       (blue, fainter) 31823 *    *31822 (red, faintest)
