Near delta is a triangular asterism formed by 63, 61, and 56 Gem. 1083 is located inside this, near to 61. Barely split at 48x,, but easily split at 72x. Primary seems to be Y but I wasn’t sure about the secondary. Often it seemed Y but occasionally (dare i say it) it seemed green. No measurement attempted.
