Description:
In Cetus, in the southern center of the constellation. I guess a little by trying to observe this double star because I did not have any PA to locate the secondary. While pointing towards Chi Cet, I see well 2 stars, the primary star is of magv ~ 6 and the secondary of magv ~ 7. My approximative estimation of PA, with a magnification of 9x, is close to 270°. The primary star is of white color whereas the secondary appeared blue.
