Easy to locate, especially since delta 2 is so red. Seems to be a huge separation between these two, and they form a nice triangle in the bino field of view with 6th magnitude TYC 2650-714-1. The red component (delta 2) is noticeably brighter. According to SMP, delta 1 is part of open cluster "Steph 1", although I could detect no other members. Anyone know after whom is "Steph" named?
