Object name: NGC7296
NGC 7296 is a small open cluster, in Lacerta, almost lost in the background of the Milky Way. It was on my list as a Herschel 400 object. I take those when nothing better is within my meridian limits. Even visually I found it rather lost in the Milky Way. My Herschel 400 entry, made June 14, 1985, reads: "Small cluster, nearly drown out by a very rich Milky Way. Where does the writer come up with the '2 degrees east of Beta' (statement) when it's less than 1 degree east?" I went on about this error as I was pointing 2 degrees east and seeing nothing until I realized that position didn't match the given coordinates. When I used the coordinates it was easy to find. Apparently, I wasn't happy with the time it cost me looking the wrong place for it.
