Object(s): NGC 7128
Category: Open cluster.
Constellation: Cygnus
Data: mag   size 
Position: RA 23:43  DEC c. 53:
At x40 half ring of +10- +12? mag stars surround a glittering cluster. Yes, they actually glow and glitter with my good seeing tonight - the cluster that is. The glittering mass resolves into stars I can't count. The outer mass has a small, butterfly glow to it with averted vision. x100 brings it a little closer and without a filter is an impressive sight. Try finding it c. 4 degrees NE of Pi-1 Cygni.
