Site classification: Exurban

Instrument: 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain equatorial mount
Object(s): Dolidze-Dzimselejsvili 4
Category: Open cluster.
Data: mag size 28'
Position: RA 5h:35.9m DEC +25d:57'
DoDz 4, a rather large collection of about three dozen stars, is a more
attractive celestial target than nearby DoDz 3, which lies 40' to the
northwest. Two bright stars of sixth and seventh magnitude highlight this
open cluster. A lower magnification than the minimum possible (118x) with the
ASH 17" classical Cassegrain would undoubtedly show DoDz 4 to better advantage.
