At ~2¼° N-W of Cr 140. In the same field of Cr 140. I observe 14 stars separately: 4 brilliant, 5 of average brightness and 5 of low brightness. I also see 2 double stars inside the cluster; the first is in the western part of Cr 132 and the second is in the south. Like Cr 140, no nebulosity in the background, only one fortuitous star regrouping.
