Description:
At ~3° W of Cursa. In the first seconds of observation, I could not separate the components but with patience, the secondary star finally appeared to the binoculars, in spite of the great difference in magnitude between the two stars. In fact, 62 Eri is the double star separated to the 9x63 with the largest differential magnitude which is given to see until now. The primary star have a greenish colour and the secondary is too weak to give a color.
