Re: (IAAC) Obj: pyxis globular - Inst: 20" f5 dobsonian
Andrew, yet again your observation was stimulating - not to say tantalizing for
us Northerners! :) The only additional information I can provide on the Pyx GC
is from Jeff Bondono's 'dObjects' database, where it is listed as containing
brightest stars of photographic magnitude 17.5, and having size 2'!
BTW, note that this object SHOULD be visible to observers from the Southern
United States at the appropriate times in the late Fall and Winter. With an
unusually low surface brightness though (for a GC), it would be a challenge.
Has anyone observed it from the Continental US or similar latitudes?
