    I didn't mention that I too had a fantastic view of TiPS in my 8" LXD55
    with an eyepiece for 31x. I followed it from epsilon Pegasi for about
    25 degrees arc, then lost only because the eyepiece moved too high.
    It seemed almost brilliant, and I saw a few sparkles from both end masses.
    This was the first time in the telescope -
    many years ago I could find it with 7x50 binos.
