A wide and easy triple. Nice because of the orange color of star A. 
Rich starfield with Omicon-2 nearby, but under present hazy conditions not spectacular.

Cygnus is sinking down to the NWest at this time almost head first. 
Omicron 1 Cyg appeared as a spectacular sight using 12x50 binoculars. I could detect an orange star with a wide blue/turquoise companion. With the binoculars held as steady as possible I could also just make out a closer fainter companion to the orange component. The faint companion seemed to be a blue colour.

Star: Omicron 1 Cygni 
Date & Time: 2254 UTC, 28.Apr.2001
Seeing: 4 <1-10 Seeing Scale (10 best)>. 
Location of site: Hamburg, Germany 
Lat/Long: 53 34 N, 9 59 E 
Site classification: Suburban sky 
Sky darkness: -- <Limiting magnitude> 
Binoculars: Vixen Ultima 9x63 + tripod 
FOV: 5d 
 
Consists of three components, very nice to see in the binos. The brightest is reddish (A), with a white/blue component to the W (B). These two have an estimated PA of 270 degrees (roughly EW direction). There is a much dimmer third component (C) located towards the S, much closer to A than is B. The PA between A and C is about 180 degrees, since the direction is roughly NS. This was a nice field in the binos, especially with the red omicron 2 in the same field. Thanks "33 Doubles" for listing this!

For me this star is an old companion.

When I was 15 I observed Cygnus region with a Zenith 10x50 binoculars that my father gave me, I saw this couple of stars and I told myself: "I must to know something more about, for sure someone else have discovered them before ..."
