Description: A large scattered cluster, fills the field. Not
very rich. Stands out well when sweeping at 40x. Includes a
smaller (30') group of about a dozen bluish mag. 7-10 stars.
No concentrated of fainter stars. A draditional naked-eye or
binocular cluster but suprisingly nice with the 'scope too.
