Description:
Please, DO NOT keep Beta outside the field! It's so intriguing
thinking that a galaxy is made of stars! Beta has an absolute mag
of -0.4. A hundred times brighter then the sun. By the way it has a
beautyfull orange hue. And that small "puff" in the eyepiece (404) is
made of huge quantities of "Beta And". Apart from that a quite bright
but "uninteresting" object.
