STF88, also known as Psi 1 Piscium. I located this one by centering my
fov on Beta Arietus, and then moving the scope approximately 10
degrees West until I came to a row of 3 5th magnitude stars. STF88 is
the most northerly of the trio. This is an easy pair to split. The
recorded separation is 30 arc seconds, with a PA of 159 degrees. The
stars are just about identical in magnitude (5.6, 5.8) and both appear
as white in colour.
