Data: mag   size 
Position: RA 17:54  DEC -35:
Seen as a “fuzzy” even in the finder. Fills most if not all of
the FOV in the low power EP. Several nice chains of brighter stars
overlaying the fainter stars. More or less in the center is a grouping
of 4 stars forming a “Y” or as I prefer, a “mini-Sagitta”.
Near this are two arcs of 5 brighter stars each. To the other side,
tje point of the mini-Sagitta forms an equilateral triangle with 2
other brighter stars.
