01 April 2000: Looking with the C8 and 40mm (50x) NGC3532 (C91) is an
astounding object with more than 200 faint stars with a "UFO" form, four
brighter stars in the middle and a great deal of stars in the backdrop. My
60mm refractor shows some more than 50 stars with the 10 mm eyepiece [80x].
This object is very dense and tight.
