63 Cygni is a lovely , strikingly orange star in the rich Milky Way fields of Cygnus. Its also double Espin 32. The faint secondary appears just to the left of 63 in the photo, but not easy to make out. Lovely BU 158 is in the same field.

Milburn 719 lies about 7' from the wide color contrast pair of SAO 71524 and 71526.

STTA A-C is a wide color contrast pair, A is also BU 159.

Espin 512 is located a few arc-minutes east of a large ring  of stars , the two brightest being HD 201522 and HD201359.

Lastly BU 839 and Espin 820 in the same field

By this time thin cirrus began to cover the sky and make things difficult.

I went and took a look at most of the systems posted here by Ray.

 

Ray made note of the Planetary Nebula NGC 7026 in his photo of BU 158 but perhaps didn’t realize that this nebula is actually listed as the primary star for BUP 9010 !

 

I remember a discussion either here on CN or reading about it somewhere else several years ago but my searches didn’t find anything.  Perhaps someone here can fill in the history on this one.

 

See for yourself  - here is my photo:

I saw the BUP 9010 on Stelladoppie. I didn’t mention it because I was confused by involvement of the PN, plus I didn’t capture it in my photo. The clouds were somewhat thick when this was taken and I packed up soon after.

In the same pic on my computerI can clearly see the companion of 63 Cygni , but not so easy here. The pics seem to lose exposure and quality once posted here, but that’s kinda off topic. Sorry

Visually stunning is 61 Cygni (Struve 2758), two matched bright tangerine beacons!
