Here are three stars separated by about half a degree from each other in the rich fields of Vulpecula. Using a 120mm refractor with a flip mirror diagonal, I can see these stars all in the same field with a 32mm plossl eyepiece. They were so visually arresting I had to take a pic. 

 

Im not an expert at imaging or manipulating photo files. If the pics aren't east to view, my apologies. 

 

BU 673/ HD 197228 A-B is a close double below the resolution of my scope/ camera setup. A-C is a nice binocular pair with some color contrast.

HD 197022 is a distinctive, attractive group with some color contrast. 

 

HD 347318 is also a treat, with an outer loop of faint stars.
