NGC884 (Open Cluster, in Perseus)
Observer: Joe Caggiano (e-mail: jcaggiano@mindspring.com)
Instrument: 6-inch equatorial reflector   Location: Horsham, Pa., USA
Light pollution: moderate   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: excellent
Time: Mon Oct 4 02:00:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1067

Decided to use my Celestron 15x70 Skymaster Binos due to having company over and did not have the 6" reflector cooled down. The Double Cluster also was very obvious and the amount of stars in the FOV is always overwhelming to me. Last week while using the 6" reflector the number of starts was quadrupled. Definetly one of my favorite clusters.

M34 (Open Cluster, in Perseus)
Observer: Joe Caggiano (e-mail: jcaggiano@mindspring.com)
Instrument: 6-inch equatorial reflector   Location: Horsham, Pa., USA
Light pollution: moderate   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: excellent
Time: Mon Oct 4 02:00:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1066

Decided to use my Celestron 15x70 Skymaster Binos due to having company over and did not have the 6" reflector cooled down. The Cluster was very obvious and the amount of stars in the FOV is always overwhelming to me. Even though the FOV in my telescope at my lowest power (30x) is about half of what it is in the binos, the number of stars is 4 times as much. I am certain this is one of my favorite clusters due to the high population of stars.

M29 (Open Cluster, in Cygnus)
Observer: Joe Caggiano (e-mail: jcaggiano@mindspring.com)
Instrument: 6-inch equatorial reflector   Location: Horsham, Pa., USA
Light pollution: moderate   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: excellent
Time: Mon Oct 4 02:00:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1064

Decided to use my Celestron 15x70 Skymaster Binos due to having company over and did not have the 6" reflector cooled down. M29 was conspicuous in Cygnus but I always am drawn to the populated star field rather than M29 itself. It was however readily available for easy gazing in the 70mm binos. I tried for M57 but missed it. It was right at the zenith point at the time of me going to bed. This morning at 0600 EST when I awoke, Venus and M42 were out but I did not have a chance before getting ready for work. Perhaps tomorrow.

M24 (Open Cluster, in Sagittarius)

Light pollution: light   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: good
Time: Wed Aug 11 23:30:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1214

it appeared as an unresolved irregular globular cluster against the background of the milky way. if i had not read earlier that it would appear as an uncondensed globular through telescopes smaller than 8 inch(200 mm),i would have really mistaken it for a globular cluster.its really a unique sight through my telescope.it did appear as a wild duck's 'beak' but not like a wild duck as a whole!

NGC7160 (Open Cluster, in Cepheus)
Observer: Giorgos Koronis (e-mail: giorgos.koronis@lies.com)
Instrument: 8-inch Dobsonian reflector   Location: Parnon mountain, Greece

A small poor open cluster in Cepheus.Doesn't stand out well from the starry background.Needed Uranometria charts to verify the identification.Easy at 46x.

Observer: Giorgos Koronis (e-mail: giorgos.koronis@lies.com)
Instrument: 8-inch Dobsonian reflector   Location: Parnon mountain, Greece
Light pollution: none   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: fair
Time: Fri Jul 16 19:20:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1039

A rich and very ancient open cluster in Lyra.Visible like a faint nebula at 28x(32mm erfle).

M41 (Open Cluster, in Canis Major)
Observer: Sriram.M.Gubbi (e-mail: sriram_gubbi@yahoo.co.in)
Instrument: 50-mm equatorial reflector   Location: Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Light pollution: moderate   Transparency: good   Seeing: good
Time: Fri Jun 25 20:35:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1195

this open cluster is one of the most beautiful deep sky objects i have seen.it appears in a small area overflowing with faint stars.

NGC6791 (Open Cluster, in Lyra)
Observer: Giorgos Koronis (e-mail: giorgos.koronis@lies.com)
Instrument: 8-inch Dobsonian reflector   Location: Parnon mountain, Greece
Light pollution: none   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: good
Time: Sat Jun 19 22:30:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1026

Large and faint open cluster in Lyra.Looked like a faint nebula at 45x(20mm plossl).Its a VERY old open cluster.Older than NGC188 in Cepheus.Its an overlooked object, in the shadow of M57 and M56,the two well known Lyra higlights...Discovered during the 19th century by the famous comet observer Winnecke.

M6 (Butterfly Cluster) (Open Cluster, in Scorpius)
Observer: Sriram.M.Gubbi (e-mail: sriram_gubbi@yahoo.co.in)
Instrument: 50-mm refractor   Location: Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Light pollution: moderate   Transparency: excellent   Seeing: excellent
Time: Tue Apr 20 05:00:00 2004 UT   Obs. no.: 1212

i found this open cluster northeast of the open cluster M7.though smaller than M7,its really a showpiece but could'nt make out it's butterfly shape.
