At 49X, this appears as a fairly wide double. Both components are blue-white, with one a bit more bluish than the other. The magnitudes are also similar, but not quite exact. At 188X, the third component becomes obvious as a fainter, tight companion to one of the stars, and perpendicular to the other star in orientation. The third component is white in color.
