Open cluster NGC 7261, globular cluster 47 Tucanae, and Bond’s Galaxy (NGC 7793)

October 10–17, 2013: Open cluster NGC 7261 in Cepheus is an excellent target for binocular observers, open cluster 47 Tucanae in Tucana offers small-telescope owners nice views, and large-telescope owners can seek out Bond's Galaxy (NGC 7793) in Sculptor.
TUCANA
Globular cluster 47 Tucanae, also known as NGC 104, is one of the sky's standout deep-sky objects. One of the sky's greatest celestial pairings occurs where it and the Small Magellanic Cloud align in Tucana.
