Quote:If you want to be precise, NGC 2175 is an emission nebula rather than an open cluster and for some reason, this little error still lingers on. If you look at the original discovery notes for NGC 2175, there is no mention of a cluster but simply a "*8m in neb". The cluster "NGC 2175" is Collinder 84./Jake
Quote:I'd also invite you and others to do likewise and see how our results compare. I'd be particularly in your view through your 15x60s and 15x63s.
Quote:Actually, according to Dr Harold Corwin's exceptional NGC/IC Project web site, NGC 2175 and Collinder 84 are one and the same, even though there is no mention of the cluster per se in the discovery notes.
