In Ophiuchus, at ~ 3° NW of IC 4756. At 9x, NGC 6633 takes the form of the 7 reversed horizontally. The cluster is not uniformly concentrated, the strongest star concentration is located at the south of the object, where I observe about 15 stars individually. One second concentration, weaker, is located in north, where I count about 15 stars too. The southern portion of the cluster is very spectacular with binos.
