Category: Open cluster.
Constellation: CMa
Data: mag 8.2  size 9'
Position: RA 07:17  DEC -13:58
At ~8½° of Sirius. This open cluster surrounds star SAO 152665 (magv = 7,8). Despite everything my goodwill, nothing is perceptible around this star although, per moments, I have the impression to see a weak nebulosity. This observation remains too dubious for truly regarding it as succeeded.
