In a little bad mood I was wandering in the summer Milky Way with my little 4" Dobsonian at Ágasvár. I thought to myself I would draw anything that I find to be beautiful - no matter what it is. Then this open cluster, just south of the Veil Nebula came into the field of view. It's a beautiful, rich open cluster with a little nebulosity due to the fainter members.
