Description:
Another triple system, with a yellow primary, blue secondary. In the low power FOV, I wasn’t sure about what was the third member - there were 2 stars in about the right location, given the separation and PA from the list. I put in the microguide and did a quick and dirty estimation of the separation and decided that it is the northernmost one of the 2 suspects.
