Position: RA : DEC :
Not a particularly bright or large cluster, and difficult to sketch as
stars keep popping in and out of view. A trapezium is the most
prominent feature, with about 15 stars visible clearly in a vague N-S
axis. A very loose cluster, again found using the S&T chart.
Perhaps a hint of blue in some of the stars.
