Re: (IAAC) Obj: NGC6144 - Inst: Orion 6" dobsonian



Hi William,
I found NGC 6144 a while ago with my 4" refractor; your description
matched what I saw. Slewing the scope back & forth a couple of times(the
smudge moved accordingly) verified my sighting. Good job as this one is
certainly a toughie!
Best regards,
Bill
