A pretty double with the 6.8 magnitude HD 42092 visible 29" southeast, both white, the 10th magnitude visible 1.5' southeast is listed as the C companion by WDS.

Gaia DR2 data reveals that all three stars are likely physically associated in some manner with very similar parallax and comparable proper motions.
