  1. Aleksander,

    This is interesting. Nice sketch. Do you have approximate coordinates for this asterism?


  2. Frank,
    Thank You.
    I have coordinates for this object: RA 18h35m , DEC +72°18′. Try to serch in the line from Vega to Polaris in 2/3 of this line. Asterism is near x Draconis.
