NGC 6791 and Carbon star U Lyrae in the constellation Lyra

Managed to grab 7 x 10 minute subs on all 3 mini-WASP cameras before the cloud I had been watching finally arrived from France.  Glad really as it meant I could have an early 12:30 a.m. night.

This is open cluster NGC 6971 in Lyra – very faint as you can see.  Why bother imaging such a faint cluster?  See the nice bright red star at the 1 O’Clock position?  Yep – another Carbon star, U Lyrae 🙂
