32 Camelopardalis (Struve 1694)

Observation Notes:

This was a little fun to line up, so near the celestial pole. Once I got there, I sighted a wide pair of pale blue stars of nearly equal magnitude. I marked them about 45 arcseconds apart with a PA of 305 degrees. Actual values are 22 arcseconds and 326 degrees, so I was a bit generous on the separation here.
