Nothing doing at lower powers, Using the barlow and 240, I suspected
something at about what I estimated about PA 210d. Published figures
are 265d, but the error was consistant with some other estimates I
made tonight, so I feel pretty good about this. Redshift 2 lists the
separation at 276", but is Luis Arguelles' table for the 33 Doubles is
Leo project has it at only 3", which matches what I see here. However,
I thought I could see an extremely faint star, perhaps about mag 12,
around PA 130-180, at about this sep. Could this be a triple system?
