Description:
This was the prettiest system, colour contrast wise, I viewed last night. The 4.8 mag 
primary was a very deep yellow bordering on gold and the 6.8 mag secondary stood
out so well with it deep blue colour. The sep is about 26.6" so any small scope 
can take advantage of the beauty that is h3945.
