At 58x (35mm Ultima, 50' tfov), NGC7380 appeared large, moderately detached,
with a wide range of stellar magnitudes.  Two doaen stars were visible with averted vision in a rough 7' triangle having an E/W base.  I tried an Ultra-
block narrow band filter but could not detect the associated nebulosity.
