NGC 188ngc188


Open Cluster in Cepheus
NGC 188
Mag 8.1
Caldwell 1


30/09/13
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!)

21/05/15
Just out of same 25mm FOV as Comet Lovejoy
Sparse, faint and ragged and rather disappointing

02/02/16
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?
