Region 2° in diam., full of dark structures. This is a beautiful region of dark structures, to the east of 6 Aquilae (BD-4°4582, 4.5 arcmin) and north of the cluster M 11. It forms a wide crescent, with the convex side to the west. To the east it is irregular and broken. The stars BD-5°4775 (8.3 arcmin) and -5°4778 (8.4 arcmin) are near the middle of this region."
