A tight and bright Open Cluster in 12mm, although rather ragged
Many stars resolved, although none so bright as HIP92507, Mag 8.35, at the clusters heart and two stars of Mags 9.10 and 9.35 above and to the right (HIP 92517 is the Mag 9.35 star)
Sits in an otherwise dark FOV in 12mm, making it really stand out!
