Description:  This is quite an inconspicuous little cluster, found just to 
the north of 12 Vulpeculae.  Perhaps a dozen stars visible at different 
times.  The cluster is centred on 4 stars forming a square diamond with 
apexes to the N, E, S and W.  Stars popped in and out of view around this 
area, but rarely for very long, although there was a very faint haze 
encompassing those central stars.
