Alpha Capricorni is seen as yellow stars with a very large speration.
The brightness of components are close.
Beta Capricorni is also easy to split. The bright component seemed
yellow or yellow-orange to me but the faint one seemed white or white-
blue. They are well seperated but the brightness difference is large.
