64° 52' (Car)
||Beautiful NGC 2808 is a fine
example of a symmetrical and strongly compressed globular cluster.
Resolvable in a 6" telescope, it is another of Dreyer's remarkable
objects: he described it as very large (14'), extremely rich, and
gradually reaching an extremely condensed status in the middle, it
contains stars at mags 13-15.
