NGC 6735 is a clustering of stars around SAO 142915 (JH's position refers to this star), though the center of the cluster seems to be a bit southwest of the star. It matches JH's description quite well, and would probably stand out nicely in a wide-field eyepiece.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NOCL S.
WDS: br * = ADS11927.
