I was getting ready to Live Stream from a C 8000 EdgeHD to Youtube for the night. I happen to see Sirius peeking between the trees as the sun was setting. So, I moved the telescope over to Sirius and thinking nothing the better. To my surprise Sirius B was there!!!... The last time that I was able to capture Sirius B was back in 1988 on VHS tape.

Here's the Youtube URL for the Live Streaming video of Sirius A and B...

For those who don't know what Live Streaming is... basically... what is be viewed on my telescope is sent live to (for example) YouTube/Facebook. They see what I'm seeing at the same time.
