Dodging the clouds....NGC 6819

With the moon once again on the increase I targeted the open cluster NGC 6819 in Cygnus. With constant patches of cloud passing through it was another session requiring some patience as I tried to grab some useable subs from the clear moments. I eventually had to settle for only 8 before admitting defeat when the cloud increased. I find this quite an attractive cluster....It was discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1784. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 8x 4minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
