Limiting magnitude in the target region at least 5.4 mag. I only observed the two brightest members.

NGC2783A: Already visible at 80x with averted vision. Appeared roundish, quite well condensed, rather small.

NGC2783B: Appeared more as an almost stellar brightening, in few moments also elongated. Permanently seen with averted vision but pretty faint.
