Appears in the same field of view as sigma Ori. I though had split it
as 32x, but higher power (72x) I found that what I thought was the
second member was not, in fact, a member and the other was a tight
double that was now split. Going back to 32x, I suspected that I could
split it, but could not confirm. Separation is 8", PA 89 degrees.
