This beautiful and compact cluster can be found near Sadr in a rich part of the sky. The resemblance with the "rocking horse" is easily made and two bright (yellow) stars really stand out. Check out this little cluster while it rides high in the sky.

Thank you for your sketch of NGC 6910, Martijn. 

I observed this lovely cluster through my William Optics 158 mm apochromatic refractor on the 1st January 2018. 

My magnification was 112X. 

It was stunning!

 

Kind regards, 

 

Aubrey.

Very nice sketch.  I like the attention to color and the richness of the star field.  It must have taken a while to properly place all those stars.
