Description:
12 to 15 bright stars inside 35'. Density of dimmer stars is the same as 
outside this grouping.
I'm not sure if this is the cluster at all, because Cr 367 is supposed 
to be 30' to the S (acording to map).
This means that this group of  stars barely overlaps with the position 
of the cluster on the map (around 1 degree E of M8). I believe my map is 
wrong because this grouping really looks like typical Collinder cluster 
(no dimm stars, just scattered group of bright stars).
All togehter, it's nothing worth starhopping to.
