Abstract

June’s first object lies 3.2° southeast of magnitude 4.1 Gamma22) Normae. NGC 6152 is visible through any size telescope, but you’ll want to use a low-power eyepiece to distinguish this widely scattered open cluster from the incredibly rich Milky Way background. Through an 8-inch scope, you’ll count more than 100 stars with ease. Note the two tiny clumps of brighter stars near the center.
