(IAAC) Obj: Stock 2 - Inst: 13" f/5.6 Newt



[Here is a "Leonid leftover" from the time when I was distracted with things
Meteoric. Sorry it took so long to forward! Steve and others, if you can please
try to post all observing logs to 'netastrocatalog@atmob.org', instead of
'-announce'. Otherwise they may not end up in our Archive for months, if the
overworked listadmin gets busy. :)  BTW, we all receive both lists! -Lew]

Todd, here is a view of Stock 2 in the 13". It was obviously more
a cluster in the finder! An easy object to spot in any binoculars.
--
Stock 2:  88 stars counted at 60X.  Very bright, Very large, not
compressed, very rich.  This cluster takes up the entire one degree
field of the 38mm Giant Erfle eyepiece.  There are many beautiful
chains of stars and dark lanes across the face of this group.  In the
11X80 finder there are 18 stars involved with a very grainy Milky Way
background. Clear Skies, Steve Coe
