Colour of epsilon bootis

    I saw this binary with me friend's 10-inch. The secondary looked so blue I could not believe my eyes!

    Has anyone hear noticed the deep colour of this lovely double star?

    This one of the prettiest binaries in the sky. If you can view it through a 6" or better refractor, DO IT!
