Object: Open cluster NGC6882 (& NGC6885) Constell: VUL RA: 20h 11.7m Decl: +26° 33' Epoch: 2000 Mag: 8.1m/8.1m Size: 18'/7' Type: II 2 p III 2 m Observer: Jere Kahanpää Obs. place: Jyväskylä, Finland Date/Time: 3./4.10.1993, 23.35 Telescope: R 150/2063 Magn: 83x Filter: Field: 30' NE Lim.mag: 5.0m Background sky: 4 Seeing: 1 Weather: 4/5 Moon high SE. Clouds covered the area a few minutes after the drawing was done. They might have interfered with the visibility of the faintest stars. Brightness: 2, (3) Alt: 35° 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 star. 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.
