Description:
In Equuleus, at ~ 5° N of Kitalpha. I knew first that it will be very hard to split this double star but I tried despite everything. The problem came especially from the difference in magnitude between the components (Magv = 5,0 and 10,0) and also owing to the fact that the secondary was in extreme cases of visibility of my instrument. As envisaged, I could see only the primary star, which is of white color.
