Description: Faint but easy. Averted vision revealed a few mag,.
13.5 stars and a motlled glow. Diam. 2' Do not reach to the
nearby mag. 11 star. Maybe a bit elliptical NE-SW. 

Note: Lyngå given Br17.0 ??!
POSS 1. There is a very faint cluster in this area but it is a
bit N of the sketched glow. The 3 brightest stars are visible on
POSS but no fainter background cluster. This glow was, however,
quite obvious and colleague Jerry Jantunen saw it too. Needs
confirmation.
