γ Volantis

While beta Volantis is the brightest single star in the constellation, gamma Volantis is actually the brightest as the combined magnitudes of its two components comes to 3.61. The pair make a splendid sight, an orange primary and whitish companion:
     Gamma Volantis 2,1 (DUN 42): 3.9, 5.4; 296, 14.4".

Also in this binocular field of view is zeta Volantis (DUN 57): 4.1, 9.3; 123, 15.6".

And finally, near the southern edge of this field, we have h3997, two nearly equal stars: 7.0, 7.1; 306, 1.9".
