The following stars are somewhat close to NGC 6811. We list them here as secondary targets should you want to observe them while near the NGC6811 field. But please do not observe them in lieu of your normal NGC 6811 observations.

Recent Information

Image from CWST - Sep 2, 2006. The CCD is actually continuous and the two halfs are joined but the data are stored with overscan regions in the middle. So think of them as an image which is joined straight across, so ignore the middle because it is not a real gap. Image is unreduced with different bias levels. Click for the full image.
