A very wide pair with quite a lot of magnitude difference. The primary is bright yellow but the secondary is hard to tell. Sometimmes the primary seemed to me to have a tinge of green. Immediately to the NW is a triangular asterism. I measured the separation at 82.5" and the separation at 290.3 (ave 5 meas).
