Lynga 7 is a 3' cluster in a starstuded field. This packed field presents a 
minor dificulty in finding the cluster. It has a low surface brightness and 
appears to be oval in shape. The cluster seems to be partly resolved through
Hector(20" scope) with the brightest stars at about 15.5 magnitude. Several 
13th magnitude stars surround the cluster. The brightest of the resolved 
stars appear to trace two parrell lines across the middle of the cluster.
The cluster was visible with the 14" apature mask. A star of 11th magnitude
is positioned 2.5' northwest of the clusters edge.
