40 & 41 Draconis

40 and 41 Draconis form a binary (Struve 2308) of two cream-coloured stars (but you might see them rather yellowish): 5.7, 6.1; PA 231, 19".

The system is at the far northern regions of Draco, just ten degrees from the North Celestial Pole and is easiest found starting at the Pole Star.
     Move down the Little Dipper to epsilon UMi (the second star on the handle). In the same field of view are 40 and 41 Draconis: binoculars.
