A bit of magnitude difference, but not enough 
to interfer with splitting at low power. the slightly brighter member I 
saw as blue, and the dimmer one I thought was yellow, but I wasn't 
really sure of this call. This all appeared in the middle of what seemed 
to me to be a pentagonal field of stars which appeared to be a possible 
candidate for a cluster, but I couldn't ID one in this location.
