Here it is.  Zeta Herculis was by far the hardest and when it became evident the little airydisc was being overlayed by the first diffraction , I had to really up the magnification but as the atmosphere disrupted that ring, so too the dimmer companion shown repeatedly.

 

The others were captivating though less difficult.

Zeta Hurc looks tough, Pete. At delta mag ~ 2.5 and that close, it has to be close to limiting observation. Nicely done.
