A very nice pair indeed, resembling Albireo. Brighter component was
orange whilst the comes was a distinct blue.  Separation estimated at
just under 30arcsec and PA at 260deg.
NB.  Sorry no co-ordinates available, I don't have Burnhams or the
like handy.  However it should be picked out in any star atlas.
