After two failed attempts to see this using 7x50 binoculars,
I set up the 8 inch Celestron this morning. At about 12:55:05 UT
on 9 Feb 2015, I finally saw it.

Magnitude roughly 8 (possibly a bit brighter)

RA 20 hr 40 min, Dec +46 deg 35 min J2000  from Falcon CO USA.

Long 104 deg 33 min 42.6 sec W, latitude +38 deg 56 min 52.8 sec N,
elevation 2073 m

This along with Alain's photographic observation may be enough to
provide an initial standard magnitude.
