Re: (IAAC) Observations of Feinstein 1? Roslund 1?
I checked the DSS image of Roslund 1, apart
from it being extremely busy due to its location I couldn't make anything out
from the dense background of stars, I am unable to find any info on it
apart from it's location (Skymap Pro7 SAC database)

According to the "Southern Cross" newsletter, of the
[Australia] Astronomical Soc.: "Scan about a degree
south [of magnificent Dunlop 323 / NGC 3532], and the
sprawling cluster of Feinstein 1 swims into view. About 25'
it comprises mag. 7 and fainter stars arrayed around
a very rough E-W oval
shape with a depleted centre."
Has anyone observed this
obscure-but-bright OC in NE Carina?
If so, please share your observation
with our IAAC Web archive:
are the data according to Jeff Bondono's dObjects
1106.0-5948;oc;=feinstein1=;S;4.7 6.55m*;;IV 2
I mainly direct this to our Equatorial Belt and Southern
although it certainly might have been a Winter Star Party [FL
target for some of our Northern observers... Sue, if I recall,
have a passion for observing the first object in every catalog?
A more appropriate (and timely) target for Northerners may be
open cluster Roslund 1, in Sagitta. Here is its dObjects
