Jabbah is a quadruple star (in amateur telescopes). Two close pairs 41" 
apart are separated 1.3" (AB pair) and 2.4" (CD pair), respectively. 
Here's what I saw:
- 25x: Widely separated pair oriented N-S. Brighter star, AB, is north.
- 48x: I think I can resolve CD pair, but still not the AB.
- 79x: CD star still looks like a close pair oriented E-W. AB also looks 
like a close pair oriented E-W.
- 96x: My friend Igor saw AB star as a very close pair oriented N-S, 
while I think it was E-W. At the time, I though only one of those stars 
is close double, so I didn't check the CD star.
