forgotten cluster

Looking for something to image with a big gibbous moon? How about this neglected old cluster? Old, because usually orange stars have been around longer than their white and blue counterparts. No one seems to care about it. I suppose not that surprising with everything else going on in that bit of the sky. So, here's a redress of balance bringing you this neat little number, 700 ly distant.
open cluster ngc6819 in cygnus
