NGC 6804 new

Hi,

NGC 6804 in aquila is a fairly bright planetary nebula and it appears as a small circular disk with a 14 mag central star. Also two other stars are involving with the nebula. The brightest is located at the NE tip of the oval, the second brightest is the 14 central star and the faintest star is SW from the mag 14 star. NGC 6804 was pretty easy with the OIII-filter in place, despite being 12 mag and quite large. The nebula is not uniformly illuminated and there was a hint at a dark central hole seen in 350X. Those details required averted vision and were very subtle. Hope you like my sketch!

Nice sketch Mikael, you've captured a wonderfully realistic view of 6804. I especially like how subtle the central star is. How did you make your drawing - pencil and paper or digitally?

Thanks Howard! I'm using pencil and paper and a scanner.I modifies the stars and invert the skech in paint. That's all.

Mikael,

It looks very nice. Excellent capture of a fine planetary in the Eagle.
