Description:
A nice orangish pair, but rather tight - not split at lower powers. At
72x I started to suspect some elongation, at 120x the secondary popped
in and out of viewas seeing varied. Higher powers were tried, but not
of any use tonight. Not able to make any measurements, but the PA was
pretty much in the directgion of drift, confirming the ID.
