Can you see the central star? An OIII filter helps to show some of the ‘outer’ halo. NGC 6751 11” SCT 42 Chapter 4 NGC 6751 72mm Refractor NGC 6755 This is a rich open cluster (over 150 stars) that is detached from the field. As you can see from the picture, there is a reasonable range of brightness. Trumpler Classification: II 2 r NGC 6755 11” SCT NGC 6755 72mm Refractor 44 Chapter 4 NGC 6760 This is a loose globular cluster that will need large apertures to resolve. 5° away to the northwest. Can you see it (not visible in the field below)?

The stars show a range of brightness, and there are between 50 and 100 cluster members. Shapley–Sawyer Concentration Class for Globular Clusters Although not given in the following pages, this classification system is used for globular clusters (GC). Roman numerals are used, and the GCs are classified according to concentration along a 12-point scale (using Roman numerals) counting downwards. That is to say, XII is the least concentrated and I is the most. Examples would be: M 12 (in Ophiuchus) is IX; M 3 (in Canes Venatici) is VI and M 5 (in Serpens) is V.

It is very concentrated towards the center. There is a definite range of brightness among the stars within the cluster, and there are over 100 stars in it! NGC 6709 (in Aquila) is classified as IV 2 m. This means that it is very difficult to distinguish from the surrounding star field and shows no concentration towards the center. The stars show a range of brightness, and there are between 50 and 100 cluster members. Shapley–Sawyer Concentration Class for Globular Clusters Although not given in the following pages, this classification system is used for globular clusters (GC).
