Contemporary observations

Magda Streicher

2003 December 16

16-inch f/10 SCT (127x)

Both Hogg 5 and 6 are visible in the starfield.

Hogg 5 vertoon as drie prominente sterretjies tussen 10 en 11magnitude en kan naas die geidentifiseerde koordinate gesien word in die posisie 10h06m22s en 60°23'16" Die onmiddelike omgewing rondom die drie sterre is redelik besig met heelwat dowwer sterre.

Brent Archinal checked the original sources on this cluster and Trumpler 12. It is not the same cluster as Trumpler 12, but it may be a part of it. Prominent three stars, half moon towards north facing three to four stars.
