Easy star hop from delta Boo. Weather still good - very suprising, no clouds for some time! NW companion significantly brighter and dominates the view of the pair, so this is not a difficult pair to split. No colour discernible. SMP: the pair consists of mu1 and mu2, mag 4.3 and 6.5. Wide separation, no problem for the binos.

Estimated PA about 120 degrees.
