Location of Omicron Capricorni

Omicron Capricorni, a very faint optical double in Capricornus that lies very close to the line of the Ecliptic.

An apparent complex of two binary stars on an almost direct line from Earth (the brighter being designated A, the other B). Although the A star is slightly brighter to an observer on Earth, it is in fact almost twice as far away as the B component.
