|NGC 1027: Open Star Cluster (Cassiopeia) RA: 02h 42.6m / DEC: +61° 35'.7|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
NGC 1027, a 6.7 magnitude open cluster, is featured in the sketch at left. Presenting a 129X view in my 10-inch, f/4.5 Newtonian, every star in the drawing is a member of NGC 1027. The brightest is 7.0 magnitude HD 16626, centered in the field of view. The tight triangle asterism just northwest of HD 16626 includes stars ranging from 11.1 magnitude to approximately 12.5 magnitude. Another 50 stars dot the field. NGC 1027 can be found about 6 degrees east-southeast of 3.4 magnitude Epsilon (45) Cassiopeiae.
