This was elongated at low power and definately split at mid power. I would call these white, although the B star might have a tinge of yellow. There is a much fainter star I would estimate about 10 seconds in a PA of about 135 or so. Research shows that this pair has a C component at a separation of 11 in PA 141, at  mag 11.3.
