Failed to split Epsilon Ori, in 25mm or 10mm eyepiece. It is a blue star, and i
can see a total of 22 stars in my FOV under 25mm eyepiece. The 22 stars seem 
fairly evenly spaced throughout the eyepiece. I note a nice halo of light that
surrounds Epsilon Ori plus the star holds magnification particularly well.
But no luck with splitting the star.
