94 Aquarii (Struve 2998)

October 9, 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 in this double is orange-yellow, with what is probably a white secondary. But the secondary appears dirty gray-violet in comparison. PA appears to be 360° with a separation of 14". Actual PA is listed as 350° with a PA of 12.7". (Woohoo!)
