Unpublished uvby - β photoelectric photometry of the open cluster NGC 6882/5 is presented. Utilizing already tested distance determinations through photometric techniques, it is found that there are at least two distinct star accumulations in the direction of the open cluster NGC 6882/5. A brief discussion is made of the nature of the previously found short period variables.
