NGC6826, The Blinking Planetary
      #5285242 - 06/23/12 12:47 PM Attachment (53 downloads)

A real beauty, if I may say so. On the 21th of June, we had a little bit of a storm here in the Netherlands. Lots of lightning and rain. Didn't thought it was going to be a good night, until 23:30, when I went outside to get something from garage. No clouds and the brighter stars were already visible. I looked on the internet, hoping it would stay clear for a couple of hours and it did.

Running back to the garage to set up my telescope, an 8 inch newton on a HEQ-5. A quick polaralingment and a two-staralignment and we were ready to go. Milkyway was outstanding, visible from around the globular M11 till Cassipeia, it was the best sky I ever had in my garden.

I quickly started following the list I'd made a few weeks ago. Almost my last observation was from NGC6826, the Blinking Planetary.

The magnification was around 400, pretty high, but it was highly needed for this object.

Thanks for watching,
Btw, if somebody else did notice the central 'bar' or any other details in this pn, please let me know, I'm still looking for an observation for this object with a telescope like this (8 inch).

Thanks, I used Photoshop CS6 for this sketch, but it could just as well been made in Gimp.
