120X - NGC 206 is located West and slightly South of M32 (NGC221). It is
vaguely boot shaped with the toe pointing East and the top of the boot to the
North. There is a central brightning about half way up the boot. NGC 206 is
easy with direct vision in both the 30CM, f:10 SCT at 138X and the 56Cm, f:4.1
DOB at 120X.
220X - NGC 206 To the West is a stream of 14-16 mag stars with GCl; G52 (Aprox
16mag) offset a little to the West. The North end of NGC 206 blends into the
halo of M31, but the South end terminates abruptly in a generally E-W stream 
of stars.
