Description: A quite poor (20 st) cluster. Stars mostly bright,
11...12 and a few of 10th magnitude. Two eight magn. stars shine
on the W and N edges. I would estimate the size to be 6' = only
half of the cat. size. Still a nice clustering but not
comparable with the nearby Messier 52, which is 20 NNW. The
Trumpler type matches the visual appearance very well.
