Last night was very steady and clear here in north central NC. Even though the dewpoint was 53, it was pretty murky (Milky Way was not blatantly obvious but easily discernible). Very dewy unfortunately by the end of the night.
But before that: I have observed NGC6934 in Delphinus countless times in the past, but for the first time ever, I noticed something interesting while observing it. The orientation in my eyepiece was just right, as I guess was the power (either 136X or 170X, I can't recall), and what appeared to me was a pattern strikingly similar to the Northern Cross , with NGC6934 serving in the role of Deneb. When I got in I Googled pictures of NGC6934, and whaddaya know! - they show just exactly what I perceived!!
Has anyone else noticed this? (Hope this is not old hat!)
