Open Cluster NGC 6819
NGC 6819 was discovered on 12th March 1784 by Caroline Herschel with her 4.2 inch reflector. However, her observations were not mentioned in the publications of her brother William. This is why John L. E. Dreyer knew nothing about it for his «New General Catalogue» in 1888. He indicated as discoverer Karl Ludwig Harding, who observed the star cluster in 1824. 
NGC 6891 is a Trumpler-type I1r open star cluster with an apparent visual magnitude of about seven. The distance is estimated at about 2.4 kpc (about 7800 light years) and the age at 2.4 billion years. The metallicity is about that of the Sun and the mass of the cluster is about 2600 solar masses.
