A wonderful suprise to come upon this cluster while scanning the milky way with
the big binoculars.  The most 3-dimensional cluster seen yet with this
instrument.  Bright triple star surrounded by "swarm of bees", stars of varying
brightnesses, nearly round, at least 40 stars seen in 10' diameter.  Beautiful
object, highly recommended.
