Observing Notes

28cm f/10 SCT Nexstar 11

Very large! Bright! Coarse, two groups of stars, to the northwest is a short chain of 6th magnitude stars, to the southeast is a group around the 5th magnitude 10 Mon, an RFT object

6 pale yellow, the lucida of an excellent group, visible with the naked eye. The Galaxy throughout this region well repays the trouble of sweeping.
