notes AB and CD form the physical quadruple Epsilon Lyrae, separation 208". The position of CD is 18411+3930. The observed small RV variations in each pair are probably merely scatter due to the very poor lines. Star C is an Alpha CVn type variable. The longitude of periastron in the orbit of CD has been corrected.
