Constellation - Vulpecula
Transparency - average
Telescope - 16" f/4.5
EP - 26mm Nagler x84
Interesting open cluster just because its so different to the hugely bright Messier OC's!
Through a telescope its very small and faint, made up of maybe half a dozen which showed a haze around them in much the same way that the Double Cluster appears naked eye.
September has been a terrible month for DSO observing, lots of clear nights but with really poor transparency.....Roll on October! :)
