Object(s): NGC 6522
Category: Globular cluster.
Class: 6
Constellation: SGR
Data: mag 8.6  size 5.6
Position: RA 18:03  DEC -30:02
Description:
This is a small globular cluster located just above the tip of the
spout in Teapot. The cluster is very small, round, pretty bright, with
a few of the outlying stars resolvable. The seeing was poor so adding
more power above 120x did not aide in resolving individual stars. As a
side note NGC 6528 is just to the east of this cluster and easily fits
in the same field with NGC 6522.
