Another object for which a wide field is best. There were 12 fairly bright stars
arranged in a distinctive pattern. Three somewhat widely separated pairs were
located 120 degrees apart, as if on alternate sides of a hexagon.Another pair
formed a short arm off of the western side, with a couple of fainter stars located
between two of the three pairs mentioned above. Another pair formed another arm
off of the SE side.
