Very nice indeed! 

The difference in magnitude of the stars and their separtion of 30" is just good for a very nice view. This double shows a bit yellowish and is very easy to find. Psi forms together with Phi, Chi and 34 Dra a Y-like figure. Psi is at the foot of this figure.

I found this double as the brightest of a celestial kite shaped asterism, made up of faint stars, flying through the heavens.  A very pleasing double star to observe, easily located on the dragons back, with the binoculars.  I could hold the companion in view for most of the time, with difficulty though. The colour of this pair appeared as 
white in these binocs. Well worth the search.
