I had a short binocular session in my back yard last week. I viewed M31 and M32, hazy patch with an intense core. M15 was small, hazy, and round with a glowing middle. Also watched a very slow satellite make it's silent way through northern Pegasus.
What was really special was finding a widely separated pair (if they are a pair) of bright orange and blue stars to the north of Lyra and Cygnus. Very Alberio-like in color, but much more widely separated. The orange star had a 3 delta mag companion close in to it. I thought I wanted to look at atlases and figure out what it was, but decided not to. I'd rather leave it as a beautiful memory, which maybe I can return to sometime in the future when I'm in the mood for the kind of daydream observing the binocular mirror mount lends itself to.
