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.
