Description:
This is actually a triple system, with the B and C components quite close to each other but wide spaced from the primary. At low power, the B/C pair was not split but at 165x in the CMG they were. All appeared blue to me. Sep (A to B/C): 34.8, PA (A-C) 134.1, (A-B) 138 (ave 5 meas.) This was a tricky system to measure, with the B/C pair being so close it was hard to align.
