This globular is very sparse...so you really need to know where to look. ESO 
452 is located beneath a line of 3 stars that lean on a 45 degree angle. At lo 
mag the globular looks like an extremely small but faint nebulous object. Hi 
mag resolve aprox. 6 to 10 cluster stars that are embedded within the 
nebulosity of the cluster. Again, this gloublar is very sparse...a sky image 
plate would be usefull in helping to locate ESO 452-11.
