Description:
In Aquila, at ~4° S-W of Delta Sgr. Globular cluster of very low dimension, a very small nebulosity of round form. According to my estimate, this is one of the smallest globular clusters than I have ever observed and certainly of lower dimension than of the Messier catalogue. This small cluster raises a stellar core per periods.
