Description:
This part of the sky has even _less_ stars that surrounding area so it
looks more like dark nebula than open cluster (not the first time for
Collinder cluster). I really don't know how did Collinder see
magnitude 6.3 cluster.
The cluster is 20' S-SE from NGC6716 (in case I was looking for it at
the wrong place).
