This delightful cluster, "which is estimated by Sir John Herschel to be
formed of from 50 to 100 stars," most of which partake of well marked and
varied colors, forming an object that is scarcely perceptible to the naked
eye, but when under proper optical influence it is one of the most brilliant and
interesting objects in the southern sky.
