|This mag. 1.2 blue/white star dominates an empty field.
The ultra wide 5.5 mag companion lies about 27' away at PA 69 making them
a naked eye pair in clear conditions and therefore visible with or without
Comments: I always see a Greenish hue to this star in binoculars and
I often mistake it for Achernar. HS5. To me the companion star is too wide
to offer interest as a double. The most striking double star in this area
is Beta PsA, a fine object in small telescopes.
