Date/time of observation: January 13th 2003.
Location of site: Kasjuni beach, Split, Croatia (Lat 43.5 N, Elev 0m)
Site classification: Suburban
Sky darkness: 5.0 <Limiting magnitude>
Moon presence: Major - gibbous or near object
Instrument: 12x45 binoculars
Object(s): Cr 62
Category: Open cluster
Data: mag 4.2 size 28'
The cluster surrounds a 5.5-mag *. Although a magnitude of 4.2
sounds quite impressive, I never (this night or any other night)
saw _anything_ here. Typical Collinder cluster. :(
To find it, go from Mu Aur over to Lambda Aur and half a step
more in the same direction.
