Observing site: Ulvila observatory, Finland
Instrument: C280/2750 mm (11” Catadioptric)
Darkness of the background sky: 3
Weather: Clear sky, calm, +13C
Objects observed: NGC 6834
During the night between 30th and 31st of August 2016, I stayed at the Ulvila observatory after the club meeting after everyone else had already left.
During the night, I observed just one object, which was NGC 6834, an open cluster in southernmost part of Cygnus, just at Cygnus-Vulpecula boundary. The cluster is located about 5 degrees NE from beta Cyg. Of this open cluster, I wrote following notes:
@117x: a rather small, pretty faint open cluster, compact, rather well detached.
So, that was all of my observations from August 2016! During August, I made 8 observations during 4 sessions. The weather during August was surprisingly cloudy, and I didn’t have more observing opportunities. Anyway, there was one really good session in the late August (27./28.8.), when I was able to do as many as 5 observations.
