Hogg 8 se posisie word aangdui net oos van 'n meer duideliker groepering wat uit 6 sterre bestaan. Die aangduide posisie van Hogg 8 beskik oor 'n paar 12magnitude sterretjies wat in n' W/E posisie is. Wes van die groepering kan die 7.6 ster (HD 91024) gesien word. 'n Paar sterre kan net noord knus by die wit ster gesien word, wat heelwaarskynlik Hogg 8 is. NGC3255 kan 20arc min. wes vanaf Hogg 7 en 8 gesien word.

Brent: Position from DSS for included asterism of 3 stars. This entire group is 1.5' N-S, and 5' E-W in extent. There is a bright star (HD 91024, V = 7.61 var, B7Iab/Ib) at the West end. The Trumpler type, diameter and number of stars given here is from Ruprecht. This is generally not considered a true cluster.
