To me, this double is way overated - too bright, too wide and the blue component is too weak in color - for all the hype it gets. Still, it's undeniably pretty at low power and so herewith is my drawing from the other night with star placement checked with reference.

In time. Sorry for the blur.  This is due to downsizing the file, compression.

Pete,

 

It is a real crowd pleaser whenever I point a scope at the pair for novice observers.

 

Frank :)
