NGC 188ngc188

Open Cluster in Cepheus
NGC 188
Mag 8.1
Caldwell 1

Very small and sparse open cluster, just resolved in 12mm but in a nice starfield (Had not realised what an interesting starfield Polaris sits in!)

Just out of same 25mm FOV as Comet Lovejoy
Sparse, faint and ragged and rather disappointing

Very faint but quite dense Open Cluster with not all stars resolved in 12mm
Sits within a parallelogram of stars of Mags 8.15, 8.70, 9.55, HIP 3354 and 9.75, HIP 3297
I wonder why the two brighter stars don't have HIP numbers?
