Vul Struve 2521

This multiple star system in Vulpecula is as colorful as it is stunning. Its covered in Stelle Doppie here. Its part of the Astronomical League Multiple Star Program and is covered by John Nanson in his WordPress blog, Star Splitters in 2011. the primary is quite orange/red and I could see no other color than white in the companions. The "D" component is Mag. 14.5, so don't expect to get it with your eye at the eyepiece.
