A very difficult pair, due to the great maganitude difference. I have tried 
several times before to split this pair, but tonight was the first successfull 
attempt. At first, not done with either of the 2 lower power EP, but in the 120, 
careful examination revealed the very faint companion. Once I know where it was, 
I could go back to even the low power and resolve it.
