Description: This is an easy open cluster under urban skies, although it 
is a little too big for the eyepiece I used. It can be easily found app. 
one degree north of Beta Oph.. I counted about 30 stars in the center, all 
of them 7mag or less. IC4665 isn't too spectacular, but under these skies 
you are happy about everything you can see.
