Description:
A fairly dim pair but still easily seen and split at low power. They are on the blue side. Forms a right triangle with 2 other stars. I am  not sure, but I tentatively identify these as Tycho 2565791 and Tycho 2567081. Our target is the vertex of this triangle and I estimated its PA at about 300 degrees.
