DSO spotting 28-29/08/2017

Finally!- a reasonable night for DSO spotting. The Moon had set, but the sky wasn’t as transparent as it might have been. Still, beggars can’t be choosers!

I started with NGC 7331 and the “Deer Lick” galaxy group in Pegasus. I imaged this some time ago, but I wanted to see if I could improve on it.

Then Planetary nebula hunting in Cygnus and Cepheus.

First NGC 7048, a reasonable size PN in Cygnus.

Then, a couple of small ones. NGC 7026 (the “Cheeseburger”) also in Cygnus.

Then NGC 7354, a small one in Cepheus.

Finally, NGC 7538, a really nice nebula that contains largest known protostar, also in Cepheus.

And so, to bed – – – .
