Above the horizon.  Circumpolar today
Alt: 74.96°   Az: 100.84°   Direction: East

NGC 7062 is a Open Cluster in the Cygnus constellation. NGC 7062 is situated north of the celestial equator and, as such, it is more easily visible from the northern hemisphere. Given its visual magnitude of 8.3, NGC 7062 is visible with the help of a binocular with a 40-50mm aperture or a small telescope.

The image below is a photograph of NGC 7062 from the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2 - see the credits section) taken in the red channel. The area of sky represented in the image is 0.5000x0.5000 degrees (30.00x30.00 arcmins).
