At ~3½° SE of Alamach. Very interesting double star, the components are very brought closer and of the same brightness. The members also have the same color. It's really intriguing to see how these 2 stars are overlapping. With a separation of 16,6", this is the weakest angular separation ever reached with my 9x63 (my old record was of 20,1").
