Very faint and sparse Open Cluster, at least in my 12mm eyepiece low down on the Southern horizon just above the trees

This is a new one, I'm observing the members of this large and ragged Open Cluster through the very fine outer branches of the apple tree!
Difficult therefore to get a true feel of its size
Perhaps not the best observing technique, but rather fun, an Eclipsing Open Cluster
