Description:
I found this fairly easily by sweeping over from nu Sco. The magnitude 
differential helped to recognize this. Primary is m6.5, secondary m9. Primary 
appears to me to be a pale yellow, with the secondary to faint to detect color. 
However, seeing wasnt the best; this may affected color.Estimated separation 
about 4m.
