DSOs from 02-03/08/2018

After imaging Saturn and Mars, I moved on to some DSOs before the moon got too high. From where I had sited the scope to observe Mars objects quite far south were available.

First a couple of planetary nebulae, NGC 6818, the “Little Gem”, then NGC 7009 / C55 the “Saturn” nebula. (most appropriate!)

Then a rather dim globular, M72, and then on to M73, that is just a 4-star asterism. (Why did Messier include it?)

Then finally another globular, M30.

And so, to bed – – – –
