The cluster associated with the nebula was first noted by Caroline Herschel in 1787. A bit faint for fairy-lit Polop en Festes, it was included in Stewart Sharpless' catalog of 1959 as object sh2-142. It needed a long time to capture anything like. Falling asleep in the heat, I left the good old 6" f5 to do its stuff all alone with live view to the tablet in the bedroom. Seems a bit like cheating, I know...
