Spotted this by star hopping from Graffias.
This was a very pretty close double which was split with 47X. It appeared
of equal magnitude and similar color, a light pale yellow. With the higher
magification, component 2 appeared about a half of a magnitude dimmer, and
also it had a rather orange tinge to it.
