Surprising easy to find compared to some I have been observing in this area. Compact, with the majority of the stars being of the same color and nearly the same brightness. They make the usual lines, arcs, and winding paths. The exception is the one bright star on the eastern edge of the cluster. The western edge has a semi-circle or loop that outlines a void area or an area devoid of stars. Problably 50 or 60 members spanning some 10 to 15 arc-minutes.
