ein sehr dichtes Sternpaar, ganz knapp getrennt sichtbar - Komponente B im NO ist eine halbe Größenklasse schwächer - leichter Farbunterschied und das Phänomen, dass der Farbkontrast zwischen beiden Sternen immer hin und her springt - ich kann nicht genau sagen, welcher Stern das kühlere oder wärmere Weiß hat

I only classified this group as moderately difficult, because I could see a diffuse, roundish brightening near faint field stars with averted vision without any problems. I'm pretty sure, that this is NGC68 as brightest member of the group.

8" f/6, 171x, Bortle 3, NELM 6m4
Overall difficult group with 8 inch, which is embedded between faint field stars. NGC68 (brightest western) is brightest member and appeared at 171x roundish with slightly brighter center, held with averted vision. NGC71 (southeastern of NGC68) was glimpsed as roundish, diffuse brightening. NGC70 (northeastern of NGC68) I tried without any success.

die schwächere Komponente ist nordwestlich des Hauptsterns zu erkennen - es sind eindeutig zwei Sterne, sie sind aber noch nicht eindeutig trennbar

bei 64x steht Komponente B im NW gut abgesetzt von A - nur geringer Helligkeitsunterschied - zurück auf 32x dann zeigt sich ein nettes eng stehendes Pärchen

Small, round, slightly darkening toward the edge. Faint star pair nearby. The "donut" (that's no image artifact!) needs more aperture for sure.
Hint: Galaxy located less than 5' from a bright 5.8m star. I recommend an eyepiece with narrow field of view and less internal reflections! A 6mm ortho worked fine for me :-)
