Observing Notes

Andrew Cooper
14 Mar 2010 Hale Pohaku, HI (map)
15cm f/5 Newtonian, Primero @ 22x

Large! Bright! An impressive open cluster, quite rich with swarms of stars in a region over a degree across, a very nice object in the 6"RFT

14 Apr 2007 Pu'u Kuainiho (map)
76mm f/6 APO

Large! bright, a rich coarse open cluster 3° northeast of ηCar, about 100 bright stars (6-10 mg.) with no notable dimmer population, about 1° across east-west and ½° north south, visible to the unaided eye and a great binocular object

15cm f/5 Newtonian, Primero @ 35x

Bright! Large! visible with the unaided eye, very rich with uncountable stars, notably homogeneous in brightness, elongated east-west, about 1° east-west, and ½° north-south, located about 5° northeast of ηCar
