I have a question regarding the double stars Delta and Epsilon in Lyra and Albiero in Cygnus.
I believe I have located then and would appreciate it if someone could help me confirm.
Delta Lyra has the widest separation of the three mentioned and is blue and orange in appearance, Epsilon Lyra is the next closest in view and both are brilliant white, Albiero has the smallest seperation and through 7x50 binocs are almost on top of each other, with blue and yellow. Are these observations correct? If not any other hints would be appreciated also.
