Description:
Member of the Pleiades, inside  the bowl, created by Alcyone, Maia, Electra and Merope.  This double wasn't on my list of doublestar to be observed and I discovered it by chance.  Struve 536 is a beautiful double with components of the same brightness.  Oddly, the components are of color bronzes (?).
