Category: Multiple star.

Data: mag   size Sep 0.9'-43.2"
Position: RA 07:40  DEC 05:14
A triple system, the primary is a very tight pair of mag 6 stars. At
low power there wasn’t anything I could do with this and at high
power it was only elongated. The third member is very faint, almost
mag 11 and tended to be washed out by the others, although it still
was noticable at low power. The primary has a bit of a bluish tinge to
it. These 3 together with another couple of unrelated stars form a
Y-shaped asterism, with the primary pair the base of the Y, the
tertiary the junction, and the unrelated stars the tips of the arms.
