Object(s): NGC 6528
Category: Globular cluster.
Data: mag 9.5 size 3.7'
Position: RA 18:05 DEC -30:03
This is a small dim globular cluster located just above the tip of the
spout in Teapot. The cluster is very small, faint, and appeared to be
slightly oval in shape. Adding power did not resolve any individual
stars in the cluster but did reveal a gradual brightening starting
just inside the edge of the cluster.
NOTE: NGC 6528 is just to the east of NGC 6522 and easily fits in the
same field with NGC 6522.
