Object: Nonex-open cluster NGC 6743 Constell: LYR RA: 19h 01.4m Decl: +29° 16' Epoch: 2000 Mag: Size: 8'?? (own) Type: IV 2 p (own) Observer: Jere Kahanpää Obs. place: Helsinki, Finland Date/Time: 2./3.9.1996, 22.30 Telescope: C 200/2000 Magn: 160x Filter: Field: 19' NE Lim.mag: 5.2m Background sky: 4 Seeing: 2 Weather: 3/5 Moon low E. Brightness: 4 Alt: 55° Description: A very faint group of stars (mag. 12...) is visible around a 7th mag. star. (This star is not in Megastar). A dozen stars within 4'. There is another candidate about 5' S of the first one. A very poor group: 8 stars mag. 10...12 within 5'. J. Herschel (1833): "A pL, poor cl of * forming irreg. group or patched, 11-12m, diam. 8'." The given position is exactly on the 7th magnitude star. Probably NGC 6743 := both groups as the total size would then be 8' and Herschel notes several sub-groups.
