Type: **
Constellation: Her
Coordinates: 18h07m49.56s / +26°06'04.40"
Components: AB / v5.8 mag / v5.8 mag / 14.4" / 183° / 2016
120mm f/5, 40x, Bortle 5+, SQM-L 20.8
SQM-L 20.5: Very nice, evident double star with equally bright components.

152mm f/5.9, 22x, Bortle 3-, SQM-L 21.3
Beautiful view. Easy to separate with components of the same brightness. It is noticeable that there are no brighter stars in the immediate vicinity, so that the double star stands out very well.

Only 11 arcminutes northwestward is the pretty bright planetary nebula IC4593.

120mm f/5, 40x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
SQM-L 20.6: Split at 40x with obvious difference in brightness. At 75x easily split.
