Description

This is the tenth panel in the 18-panel mosaic shot on 19 different nights between between February 19, 2021 and April 11, 2021. This is the very upper-left (from the larger mosaic's point of view) region of the cluster and doesn't contain very many objects of interest, but it's still an essential part of the project.

(This is Panel 01 in the mosaic sequence set forth here: https://astrob.in/costym/0/)
