Seeing: 5 Transparency: 6 Moon: 90%

Brilliant blue-white, surrounded by the soft glow of nebulosity and defining the center of the open cluster NGC 1980, two companions are easily visible, an 8th magnitude companion is seen 12" southeast and a 10th magnitude 50" east, the pretty double HR 1887/HR 1886 is 8' southwest, the southern margin of M42 intrudes on the northern edge of the field, overall the field is simply superb with the glow of nebulosity scattered with half a dozen 6 to 8th magnitude stars.
