Apr 2, 2011 Hale Pohaku, HI (map)
46cm f/4.5 Newtonian, Deep Violet @ 175x
A very faint cluster of five members. NGC3817, NGC3819, NGC3820, NGC3822 and NGC3825 all reasonably visible given the good conditions. NGC3820 was the most difficult, knowing the location with respect to the others aided detection. All members were small and faint, about 1' in diameter, with little detail to be seen. The cluster straddles the Leo-Virgo border.
