Position: RA :  DEC :
Small open cluster with only about 6 stars found up from a triangle 
asterism. The asterism was pointing up at an angle. Leading up from the 
point star, there was a chain of dim stars leading up to the cluster. Not 
a very exciting object. I only viewed this at 59x with a 26mm eyepiece.
