I was browsing the ESO/SRC J film atlas and noticed two bright stars near the corner of Sheet #175. Immediately my attention was drawn to a very obvious scattered cluster between the stars.
A somewhat richer, similar-looking clustering, was noticed further east.
Subsequently I identified the two stars as HD 125288 (4.3V) and HD 124367 (5.0V). The grouping in-between in ESO 175-6, and the eastward cluster is NGC 5662.
