This sketch contains the open cluster NGC 1502 and an asterism made up of a 2 1/2° chain of stars that forms a line from the cluster towards the northwest called Kemble’s Cascade. Kemble’s Cascade was so named by the late Walter Scott Houston, who authored Sky and Telescope’s magazine column “Deep Sky Wonders” for decades. Lucian Kemble was the person who sent Houston a description and drawing of the cascade.
Hi ASOD, in my country there are not a good average of cloudless nights, and that to say of my city, however the weather of January and February has left draw these sectors of south sky with my binoculars 10×50.
Hola ASOD, en mi país no hay un buen promedio de noches despejadas y que decir de mi ciudad, sin embargo el clima de principio de año me ha dejado dibujar estos 4 sectores del cielo sur con mis binoculares 10×50.
