The latest issue of Sky & Telescope (Nov 2019 pgs 54-55) discusses the system Lassell 1 which is located in Cygnus.

 

The article piqued my interest and I checked it out last night.  Photo below.  According to the latest GAIA release the system appears to be just an interesting optical association.  Also this system appears to be a one-off as there doesn't appear to be any other systems listed in the WDS with the LSL identifier.
