01 July 2000. ...I passed to the cluster C91 (NGC3532) to the north of
theta Carinae. It occupies the whole 17 mm eyepiece and has an amazing
amount of stars, around 200 spread in all the field.
20 Jan 2001. ...[Looking near the beach, at no more than 500 m above
the sea level] NGC3532 has some more than 100 stars in a 55' with the
26mm eyepiece in the LX200 [10 inch at 96x].
