Suceeded in splitting this tonight at 240x. The conditions were pretty
good, which probably helped. I used both the hex mask and no mask in
conjunction with my barlow. I think it was better without the mask. At
120x, nothing was doing without the mask; with the mask I got a bit of
a notch but no separation.
