Description: 
NGC 6874: An obvious clustering of stars at 52x. Could be a real
open cluster. About 15 stars within 7', brightest mag. 10. In
the SE part of the field. 

Basel 6??: There is another group of bright stars 15' NE.
Diameter 14', total 15 stars mag. 10... Irregular and not
concentrated. The size and Tr-type of Basel 6 fits well to this
group but it's a bit too much off-place. The coordinates for
this group is  20h 07.1m +38° 31' (2000) while Basel 6 should be
at 20h 06.8m +38° 21'.
