9 Feb 2013 Hale Pohaku, HI (map)
46cm f/4.5 Newtonian, Deep Violet @ 175x

A miniature version of M46, a modest cluster with a planetary NGC2818A embedded in the western margin, a uniform cluster of 13 and 14th magnitude stars about 5' across

A good sized cluster hosting a planetary nebula. The cluster is coarse, large at 20', the planetary is embedded in the west margin of the cluster.
