Hi Owen,
 About a year ago I observed Sirius B visually using a friend’s good quality 200mm APO refractor. It wasn’t easy but it was definitely observable. The refractor I was using had good contrast and colour correction which helped. Telescopes of poor contrast will struggle to show it because Sirius is magnificently bright in any aperture telescope.
