61 and 63 Gem point to this pair of pairs. The 2 primaries form a wide spaced double. The companions were real difficult to make out owing to their faintness. The wider and brighter one I was able to make out, at first with averted vision and then directly. I think that the other one I made with averted vision, but I wouldn’t swear to it. No attempt at measurements.
