Very bright open collection of stars. The main 6 stars forming a small dipper shape can be
viewed within a degree. This is one cluster you can never get enough of!

Plotting the Pleiades is like playing a complex connect-the-dot with an RFT. Low-power
barely fits the 6 brightest stars. A rich star field with a wide range of magnitudes, many
smaller asterisms and polygon shapes visible. The faint reflection nebula could not be
seen. Moon at 1st Quarter.
