After an hour of sometimes fustrating searching, I finally located
what I am pretty sure is this pair. I began to suspect splitting at
72x, and at higher powers the split would pop in and out of view. The
mag (8) and the close separation I estimate at about the published
figure of 5.5. I guestimated a PA of about 60d, which is close to the
56 published.
