Omicron Coronae Borealis is also nearby. 
Its magnitude is +5.5. 
Get that one right and eta Crb might get sorted. 
Chi Bootis' magnitude is 5.3. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Well the U (ultraviolet) magnitude in Simbad is 5.6, but the V (visual) mag is 4.98. To me it 'looked' brighter than 5.6 but maybe not all the way up to 5... case unsolved Aubrey.

Just read on the BAA forum about the unearthing of Birmingham's portrait Ronan, that's a remarkable discovery after all these years.
