46cm f/4.5 Newtonian, Deep Violet @ 60x
A unique line of four 7th magnitude stars in a very neat north-south line, from south to north the mags are 6.1, 7.2, 6.8, 7.1, spacing very even at 8, 8, and 10', the northernmost star is 7' east of the core on NGC6357, the War and Peace Nebula, photographs show the nebula encompassing the row of stars, thus I long ago bestowed the moniker Road to War on this asterism
