By this time, parts of the constellation were disappearing behind trees. In fact, when I looked through the finder after centering on this pair, the view was largely obscured by leaves and I could see no stars! Nonetheless, I was able to see system in the EP. There was a blue-white colon of relatively close stars, and the third member was some distance off forming a very acute right triangle.
