Epsilon Lyrae, “The Double Double” Quadruple Star in Lyra

You can clearly see separation between the double stars, but unfortunately you can't see the quadruple star under this magnification. I did, however, catch another double star (Zeta Lyrae) in the same frame. Lyra is jam-packed with double stars!
