July’s first target sits 2.8° east-northeast of magnitude 1.8 Kaus Australis (Epsilon [ε] Sagittarii). Through a 6-inch telescope at 125×, this object has a compact core with an irregular halo around it. A 14-inch scope at 300× didn’t resolve any of its stars, but it did expand the core enough to make it appear wedge-shaped, pointed toward the east-southeast. Magnitude 6.9 SAO 210344 lies 7′ northwest of the cluster’s center.
