NGC 6882/5

On this page I collect my observations of the open star cluster NGC 6882/5 in the constellation Vulpecula.

 

Introduction

The open star cluster NGC 6882 = NGC 6885 in constellation Vulpecula are the, according to the German Wikipedia, the same star cluster, whereas SkySafari and Stellarium point to different locations for these two numbers: NGC 6882 around the star 19 Vul (HD 192004) and NGC 6885 around the star 20 Vul (HD 192044). Here, this is shown in SkySafari:

The english-speaking Wikipedia refers only to NGC 6885 around the star 20 Vul (HD 192044), but mentions NGC 6882. Astrometry.net calls the star cluster that the eVscope searched for NGC 6882, just like the eVscope. However, it is located around the star 20 Vul (HD 192044) and therefore should be called NGC 6885:

Regrettably, the labels of the star cluster and the star overlap...
