Andrew Posted January 18, 2007 Share Posted January 18, 2007 The past month has been dire weather-wise, but I finally managed to get out for a few hours the other night. I looked up NGC663 which is a new one for me. If you haven't given it a go and you like open clusters I recommend it. It's a piece of cake to find being close to some of the bright stars that make up Cassiopeia. It's sometimes called the horseshoe cluster and it has a pretty distinct U shape, although it's dominated by some pairs of bright stars which make it look to me a little like NGC457 (the owl cluster).Anyway, here's a sketch..... maybe I'll get a chance to get out again some time in Feb if the clouds ever lift Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
