Description: There should be 2 open clusters in the field but
only one is apparent; 
NGC 6882: A big cluster,stars mostly on the N side of the bright
star. About 30 stars. At 52x the cluster stands out quite
nicely. A starless area is visible on the W side of the central
NGC 6885 surrounds (according to Megastar) the central star and
is clearly smaller than -82. With some imagination the brighter
stars on the S side could be seen as a separate group. Very
poor, only about half a dozen stars, if one accepts this as the
NGC6885. The size fits.
