Can't find this double in Sky Safari pro.   I have searched for another name for it without success. Does anyone know what other designation(s) it has?

Hi Eric,

The star that you are looking for is WDS 20037+3820. The official discoverer designation for John Herschel's pairs is HJ in the Washington Double Star catalog. Try searching for HJ1470
