NGC 6795. The NGC description, "Cl, Ri, bet 2 sts 9", transcribed correctly from GC, doesn't really do justice to JH's original description: "The first of 3 sts 9 m, nearly in the parallel, joined by a rich clustering portion of the Milky Way." I sometimes wonder if JH wrote the GC descriptions or had a clerk do the chore for him.
I've made the position a little closer to the middle of the three stars. That seems to represent the "rich clustering portion" better than JH's own place nearer the first star.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NO CL DC.
