My effort at Epsilon Bootes with my 12" at x300. This is a sketch made a fews weeks ago in April. From my notes I described the primary as a large luminous mid-yellow colour. The secondary I saw as a much less luminous star with a subtle light blue colour.

I didn't realize there was such a big difference in magnitude between the two which explains why I've found this a struggle to split.

Thanks.

Well that explains why I've not been able to split it myself yet! Must try harder! Lovely sketch though, got an idea of what to expect when I try to split it!
