In Equuleus, at a few minutes W of Delta Equ. With more 300" of separation, this double star is easy to separate and the contrast of color is interesting, the primary star being of green colour and the secondary being blue. Also, because the components are rather brilliant (magv = 4,2 and 5,7 respectively), this observation is done without efforts. Beautiful sight!
