     Arto is correct --- I goofed (for reasons not obvious
to me) in making the cv the moving southeastern star of
the pair.  A look at the GALEX images, for instance,
makes it obvious which star has the strong uv flux.
     So indeed the cv is the northwestern star.
My apologies for any confusion this may have caused!
