Type: open cluster
Mag: B=?, V=?
NGC 7037. JH describes this cluster as "... not very rich; irregular figure, 8' l[ong], 5' br[oad]; stars 11... 15 m." This is just the sort of cluster that exists at his position. There is also a more compact "core" of stars a couple of minutes to the northeast (I put this core at 21 08 55, +33 33.8 for 1950.0) that JH does not mention.
In any case, JH's cluster is clear on the DSS. RNGC nevertheless has it as non-existent.
The SAC database comments: "HURST: 10in, 7' dia, 10 stars 12m..."
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NOCL S.
