On this page I collect my observations of the globular star cluster M 79 (NGC 1904) in the constellation Lepus.



Tthe globular star cluster M 79 in the constellation Lepus is, according to Karkoschka, hard to resolve into stars and very distant for such a type of star cluster. Moreover, it is located fairly low in the sky.
