Observation Notes:

Seeing conditions weren't the greatest this evening, so I couldn't snag this one until it approached culmination. I was able to finally spot the speck of the secondary emerging from the primary's diffraction pattern. Both stars appeared white. Haas sees them as bright yellow-white/white; Smyth sees silvery-white/pale-blue.
