Somewhat harder to find than I 91. I first located NGC 6318, then swept over
some from this. Again, the mag differential helped to recognize this; the
primary is m6.5 but the secondary is m10 and I almost overlooked it at first.
The primary appeared to be either pale yellow or white, but the secondary was
too faint to judge color.d Estimated separation of 3m.
