Re: (IAAC) Object: NGC2362 (OC) INST: 85mm APO refractor f/7



Steve, this is much appreciated. I was really surprised by this cluster.
Even though it is
visible here in the north (i'm back now) .. I never strove to see it in the
cold. I am just about
to get my 18", and was curious as to how it looks in larger aperture.
