I managed to hunt down AND VI and AND VII last night, both were seen as no
more than slight field brightenings and each slightly brighter to the
middle using a 32-in in somewhat soft seeing and fair transparency.
20N (183x) Involved with and just S of a group of 8 faint stars about
3' NE of a 10.09 mag star.
Best seen with the field moving and averted vision as a very
slightly brighter part of the field.
Slightly brighter to the middle.
13N (281x) A fairly large and very slightly brighter to the middle glow
just E of, and involved with a N-S rectangle of faint stars
with the brightest star 11.44 at the NE corner.
4.3' SW of the W member of an E-W 9.72-9.99 field double.
The rectangle's W side points to a little knot of stars which
looks non-stellar to the N inside a NE pointing isosceles
triangle. This knot makes a small round spot!
20N (183x) Broadly brighter spot just E of the rectangle of faint stars.
