An interesting little pair - somewhat close at 3.5” and just over 2 magnitude difference. At low power I could just barely make out the companion sitting almost due north of the primary. It was clearly visible at higher powers. The primary was blue but I couldn’t tell about the secondary.  Otherwise the FOV is pretty sparse.
