117X - A small richly concentrated cluster of aproximately 30 stars. There is a
clump of stars with a relative bright pair with 2 fainter stars lying between
the stars of the bright pair. Most of the cluster stars are 13 mag with 8 stars
brighter. The cluster is imbedded in an immisson nebula (NGC6820), but it's too
faint to be seen with the current conditions.
