stream of stars lying to the near north and a staggered stream to the SW
running NNE-SSW with a bright star teminating the string to the west.
2103X - The glowing spot is well resolve. The bright star must be foregroung
star, because all the cluster stars are near the same magnitude. They are too
dim to see color. There is 9 7-10 mag stars and aprox 50 dimmer down to 11-12
mag. The cluster is loose, illdefined scattering of stars.
