18" (8/17/04): at 160x this is a small group of 25-30 stars down to mag 15, 
elongated 3'x1' NW-SE.  Located ~3' SE of a mag 8 star.  The brightest mag 9.5 
star is at the NE tip of the cluster and the fairly rich cluster follows to the 
SE.  A faint pair is near the center of the group

13.1" (8/25/84): about a dozen faint stars are visible over unresolved haze with 
a mag 9.5 star at the NW edge.  Appears to be a rich group.  Mag 8.2 SAO 20306 
is just off the NW edge.  About 12' NW is the double star ?2953 = 7.8/9.8 at 8".
