BU655/Dra - nice challenge
      #6069484 - 09/08/13 01:09 PM

BU655 is part of a nice asterism suggesting a triple star at low magnification with maybe some other fainter companions nearby. With 2.1" separation and +8.34/12mag quite a challenge for 140mm. Got a hint of the faint companion at 1 o'clock and checked this as correct position afterwards - but I suspect rather a lucky hit here as a somewhat larger aperture would be required to resolve this pair with confidence.

In the list to do Wilfried - thanks!

Should have known last night, I was a few degrees away from it whilst running down Struve's catalog.
