Oops, Bill Allen notes that finding this little fella may not be so easy.
Can anyone get a secure ID and precise position?

Do you have a chart of this one ? I can not find a chart on your website.

I have used Guide 7 to get a chart of V551 and have found the area all right.
 However I can not be sure that I have found V551.    Is V551 in a nebulous 
region as a hazy patch appears in the centre of the CCD frame when centred 
on V551. The hazy patch disappears when centred on a star a couple CCD 
frames away. Perhaps its the moon as its not far from V551.
