Description:
In Cetus, localised in the western center of the constellation. The first seconds of observation showed me only the primary star but I have been able to see the secondary by observing it attentively. This double star separates rather well with the 9x63 even if the primary exceeds in brightness the secondary. The primary are of color blue, unable to determine the color of the secondary.
