Re: (IAAC) Object: NGC2362 (OC) INST: 85mm APO refractor f/7
Glad to see that you are getting some southern goodies
observed with in the Bahamas. Hope you are having fun. Here is
an observation of 2362 with my 13".
NGC 2362 pretty bright, pretty large, somewhat compressed, round at
165X. Tau CMA and about 45 stars. Tau has dark band around it, then
cluster members. Tau has two companions that form almost a straight
line. Tau is white, the two comes are bluish and both are on one
side of Tau. Having a bright triple star in the center of a cluster
is quite unique and I return to this object often.
Lots of fun;
