Hi Callum,The star was in the same field as 61 Cyg and was visible above and to the right of the companion star to 61 Cygni. I can’t say how far it was unfortunately.I’m off tomorrow on a week-end field trip to Harris House in the Yorkshire Dales with members from Macclesfield AS.I will look again if it’s clear tomorrow evening and see if there is somebody there who can identify this mastery object. Or see whether the star shows any variability.On reflection, I probably saw a red giant; but It would be nice to know if it has a number.
