BF Sagittae

A deep red, but rather faint, variable in a beautiful field, which includes two other binocular variables; X Sagittae is a star similar to BF, but slightly fainter at minimum, and HU Sge is a red irregular variable with a small range, though the brightest of the three. The magnitudes of the stars close to BF are from the AAVSO preliminary (b) scale chart for TX Sge, a faint Mira star in the area, though star 82 near BF and the remaining stars are from my own visual estimates.
