Description:
220X-NGC6793 is nearly concealed in the general scatter of the Milky Way. It is
not easy to discern. I counted 41 stars in the cluster area proper, but there
is a multitude of fainter and unresolved stars. The brighter stars arcing
across the North and South are joined by a serpentine stream South of the 3
brighter central stars making a figure 'S'. Also just north from the Central
trio seems to be a small area nearly void of stars.
