I found the Bright Double Star list on Stellarium. Clicking on the star gives you the data pop up.  I found the separation in the star data (fourth from the bottom).  I think the secondary position is fifth from the bottom; is that correct?  Does it show magnitude of the second star or the difference. 

 

Side question, when is a separation to big.  I found some big enough I would think it would look like just another star in the sky.
