A very tight pair of mag 8 stars. I suspected elongation at low power, got a definate elongation at mid power, and at high power was just able to split this pair. They were blue-white it color. There appeared to be some very faint stars scattered about the FOV, but it isnít fully dark yet and hard to tell.
