||250mm f5.6 Dobsonian||26mmPlossl||Adjacent to alpha-Scutum. Very loose. About a dozen stars in a 'boot' shape.
|NGC6682||18:39.6||-04 46||Open Cluster/Star Cloud||July 20 2020||Culburra
||400mm f4.5 Dobsonian||8-24mmBaaderZoom||Listed variously as cluster or star cloud. At the position indicated by my Argo Navis computer I see a small
smattering of stars. Slightly north there is a rich star field. Notes in Issue 96 of Australian Sky & Telescope page 54 describe an 'absorption hole ...[that]
absorbs light from background stars' through which we see NGC6682. Interesting.

||400mm f4.5 Dobsonian||8-24mmBaaderZoom||A wonderful large and rich cluster with a bright field star at the apparent centre. Zooming in shows
more and more detail. The main block of stars is squarish.
