Object: nonex-open cluster NGC 2664             Constell: CNC

RA: 08h 47.2m           Decl: +12° 36'          Epoch: 2000
Mag: 8m (own)           Size: 3' (own)          Type: IV 2 p

Observer: Jere Kahanpää
Obs. place: Hartola, Finland
Date/Time: 25./26.2. 1995, 21.50

Telescope: N 205/1000

Field: 22'              NE Lim.mag: 5.8m
Background sky: 2       Seeing: 3 
Weather: -5 °C. No Moon. Some ice fog in the air.

Brightness: 2           Alt: 40°    
Description: Clearly exists. A small (3') group of 4 stars mag.
10-11 is evident exactly where this virtually unknown ngc-ogject
should be. Increasing the magnification to 133x reveals a few
14m stars aroung the bright ones bringing the total to a grand
almost ten. If this is anything but a asterism I'm very
suprised. About 1.5° from the somewhat more famous cluster M 67. 

Original observation by John Herschel: "A neat cl. of * 9 and 10
m regularly arranged about a central one."
