Data: mag 7.1  size 12'.0

Pretty little cluster of stars in Vulpecula. The rich summer Milky Way fields
do make it somewhat difficult to tell exactly where the edges of the cluster
are. In the center of NGC 6823 is a very small tight asterism of 4 stars seen
as a fuzzy spot at 49X and 98X but clearly resolved at 203X
Asterism best seen at 203X, the cluster as a whole is best viewed at 98X
