At 32x forms a fairly tight Y-shaped group of four stars. The mag 12.5 component is not visible. Working up the powers, I thought I could see it at 72x. Separations: A to the junction of the Y: 30; A to the other top of the Y, 40; A to the bottom of the Y, about 80. I did not attempt any PA measurements tonight.
