Re: (IAAC) Obj: Nu Draconis, Mu Bootes, Iota Bootes, Epsilon Lyrae



I've split eps Lyr without glasses (I don't need them for distance), but only 
once or twice: for me, it takes an exceedingly rare combination of good seeing 
and completely unstrained (well-rested, relaxed) eyes. And for some unknown 
reason, really dark skies seem to help too! (This may be just because I am at 
my most relaxed under a deep, dark rural sky. ;>)
Check out my early naked-eye log of this double at:

I do have a friend (Norm McLeod, meteor observer since 1964) who wears fairly 
strong far-sight glasses - Norm splits epsilon on a normal night.
Clear skies!
