Unable to split at 32x, Barely split at 48x. More readily spit at 72x. The 
primary difficulty lies in the great magnitude difference, rather than the 
separation. The primary is yellow but the secondary is too faint to detect color. 
It was also too faint to measure with my reticle eyepiece.

I did estimate the separation at about 50, PA about 80d.
