Observing Notes

46cm f/4.5 Deep Violet

Small patch 1'x'1 of haze, no structure, no apparent stars involved, just 4' east of NGC2183, very dim, don't bother with a smaller scope

Very dim wisp involving three stars, elongated north-south, almost not visible, moving the scope helps, small clump 4.5' to the west is NGC2183
