NOSS angular separation

Ralph McConahy just told me some information that is good to know for
knowing what to expect when looking for all the components of a NOSS trio.
That is, the NOSS trios are in an "L" pattern--one following the other on
nearly the same track with a third 3 to 5 to one side.

Another question---are they all equidistant or are two much closer together?

Now I will determine the size of the field of view of my binoculars and get
a feel for how far apart they can be when looking through those binocs.

The next thing for me is to see a pair move through my telescope's field of
view set at 25X.

Thanks Ralph!
