Equipment:

The image taken with a 12.5” RCOS f/9 astrograph and a SBIG STF8300c camera on a Paramount ME

Description:

NGC 6882 /NGC 6885 are open clusters in the constellation Vulpecula, although there is considerable discussion in the literature as to whether one is superimposed on the other, are separate clusters, or if they where accidentally duplicated in the original 1784 observation. The bright foreground star, 20 Vulpeculae, does not belong to the cluster.
