Observer: Dave Mitsky Your skills: Intermediate (some years) Date/time of observation: 1999/11/29 01:59 UT Location of site: ASH Naylor Observatory, Lewisberry, PA (Lat 40.15 d N, 76.9 d W, Elev 190 meters) Site classification: Exurban Sky darkness: >5.0 (Limiting magnitude) Seeing: 5 (1-10 Seeing Scale (10 best)) Moon presence: None - moon not in sky Instrument: 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain equatorial mount Magnification: 118x Filter(s): None Object(s): Dolidze-Dzimselejsvili 4 Category: Open cluster. Class: Constellation: Taurus Data: mag size 28' Position: RA 5h:35.9m DEC +25d:57'

Description: DoDz 4, a rather large collection of about three dozen stars, is a more attractive celestial target than nearby DoDz 3, which lies 40' to the northwest. Two bright stars of sixth and seventh magnitude highlight this open cluster. A lower magnification than the minimum possible (118x) with the ASH 17" classical Cassegrain would undoubtedly show DoDz 4 to better advantage.
