Harrington sees the 3rd magnitude Primary as a striking Yellow, while 
the secondary is a mag. 6 Orange star. Two other stars in the field 
render a pretty picture. 

This was an easy object in the large Binox. I see the colours as Light Yellow and Red. This object is best seen at low power and makes a wonderful display piece. 
Ambience: Clouds suddenly cleared at a late hour last night and I set up the 8" and Big Binox with a plan to cruise through some old favourites and to hopefully lift some spirits of those of you fighting ice floes in your back yards. Here, I have to admit ,the neighbours' kids are celebrating our New Year by splashing about in their back-yard 
swimming pool under the light of a waxing moon at 11 p.m. Ponder this as you gaze on glacial gardens! Long ago in an African night I once floated  on my back in a dark pool on an inky night and had the universe above and reflected stars below lapping all around me…
