Update on Struve 2668

I am posting this as a new entry rather than editing the previous entry which was Uranometria, Struve 2668 and The Living Star Atlas. Do 5 is part of the Dolidze catalogue of clusters which frequent the area of Cygnus. This cluster in particular is an eye catcher, also it is the home of Struve 2668. Again, it's position is 20h 20.3m RA, +39 24" DEC

  1. I will be hunting this down soon......thanks for the directions!

  2. The cluster looked better in the Pronto at lower power. In a very dark sky, it may be hard to distinguish from the background since it is in the Milky Way Star fied.
