Description:
Wider spaced and more magnitude difference that its 
earlier teammate above, it was still easily split in the low power. I 
saw the primary as yellow with the secondary too faint for color.  While 
there are a far amount of other stars in the FOV, it was not a dense as 
the 1045 FOV. It did seemed to be outlined in sort of a triangle formed 
by some rows of stars, but there were gaps in this.
