Category: Multiple star.
Class: 
Constellation: Tau
Data: mag 4.3 + 10.0  size 
Position: RA 03:46  DEC 24:29
Description:
Member of the Pleiades.  The primary star is quite visible but the secondary is much too weak for it (magv = 10,0, sep. = 69,0 ", PA = 330°) to be distinguished individually.  I had almost any hope to separate this double star, but I tested it nevertheless.  The primary star is white color.
