Epsilon Pegasi (South 798)

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.

Observation Notes:

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 315° and a separation of about 150". This matches up pretty nicely with the AL measurements of 320° and 142". (Woo!...?)
