Open Clusters in Vulpecula
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. The image taken with a 12.5” RCOS f/9 astrograph and a SBIG STF8300c camera on a Paramount ME on Oct 2, 2016 in Mayhill, NM (5 x 1200 sec lights @ -15 degrees C; 18 darks; 128 bias; 128 flats). Calibrated, registered, integrated, and processed in PixInsight 1.8.4.1195 Ripley (x64).
