The opening of deep sky observing season 2016-2017! The sky was still light, and there were some high clouds, but still I decided to start the deep sky season. Besides observing deep sky, I also observed variable stars in the early evening.

NGC 7062

During the night, I made only one deep sky observation, the object of my choice was NGC 7062, an open cluster in northern part of Cygnus, about 7° ENE from Deneb. Of this object, I wrote following notes:

@120x: A rather small, compact, pretty faint open cluster. The brightness range of the cluster appears to be considerably large, the cluster is well detached from it’s background.
