Hi John,

Thanks for your interesting report.

Must admit I haven't seen the pair in Sagittarius, but here are my notes on HWE 86 in Scorpius with my old 25cm back in 1997:

HWE 86 Double star Scorpius
25cm x181: Difficult to pick out at low power, tight-ish with a magnitudes difference of 1.5 mags. Fairly close, probably just under 2" in PA150. As Hartung mentions, there is a group of fainter stars that seem to encircle it.
