Two clusters for the price of one... NGC 6885 (or Caldwell 37) is a large and loose cluster around the bright star 20 Vulpeculae and appears to consist of two parts. Up (south) is marked by a trapezium of bright stars while the north consists of a long cloud of somewhat bright stars (of which two are yellow/orange) and many dimmer suns. This part of the cluster even has its own designation: NGC 6882 and is part of the H400 list.

Very beautiful image of this cluster. You have a great ability to compose these complex and delicate groups of stars.
Congratulations. Pedro

Wow, so many stars.  I can tell that you placed them all intentionally and didn't just stipple them in.  This must have taken quite a while.  The result speaks for itself.
