Data: mag   size 
Position: RA :  DEC :
Wide-spaced double, easily split at any power, Although the primary lists at mag 4.5, I was not able to see this at all naked-eye. I located this by point my scocpe with the unit-finder to the approximate location, then using the 6x finder to locate the nearest bright star (which was visible in the 6x FOV.) The primary was a bright yellow; the secondary appearerd faintly blue, perhaps in contrast. Separation: 72.5", PA: 351d 30' (listed at 74.3", 355d).
Visible in even the same high-power FOV was a second pair (see following post).
