Quote:Can't say for sure BUT reading the link above I think it was most likely NGC 663, which is ok too.Thanks for the replies
Quote:If I am not mistaken, I am able to see both M-103 and NGC 663 in either 10x50's or an 9x50 finder.
Tony Flanders First and foremost observing love: naked eye. Second, binoculars. Last but not least, telescopes. And I sometimes dabble with cameras.

M103 is much smaller and somewhat fainter, but its brightest stars are somewhat brighter, so you probably have a higher chance of resolving individual stars within it.
