It took quite some time to find this, as the stars in Her are just at
the naked eye limit tonight. At 32x and 48x, nothing doing, just
barely split at 72x, at 120x a good clean split. Both members appear a
nice, bright yellow. At this power, I could just barely detect the
widespaced but very faint third member.
