October 17, 2006: To help provide a consistent style for my double star sketches, the above sketch is a digital update to the original sketch.
The primary star was a brilliant yellow with a tinge of orange. The secondary color was either white or blue. It was hard to tell with contrast effects from the brilliant primary. They were aligned NW to SE at a position angle of about 315Â° and a separation of about 150″. This matches up pretty nicely with the AL measurements of 320Â° and 142″. (Woo!…?)
