Nice Mike, I've tried visual observations of this several times but was unsure which stars belonged to the cluster with all the background stars of the Milky Way. The cluster is pretty evident in this photo. Bill
Definitely a low power wide field object. It’s funny how much clusters can change appearance when looking through different scopes.
