Object(s): NGC 7209
Category: Open cluster.
Constellation: Lac
Data: mag 6.7  size 25'
Position: RA 22:05  DEC +46:30
It's easy to locate using the star 2 Lac as a reference. The cluster is nearly 
3º west from that star. Through the eyepiece,it is a fine cluster paired with 
a 6th mag orange star. Very similar in size to NGC 7243, but has fainter 
stars. Some 50 stars can be seen at 80x; the cluster has an squared shape but 
the brightest stars are located on a "L" shaped group.
