Found this when comparing an image I took with the same field in Sky Safari.  It is in the same field as the dark nebula B86...  The Glob is 9.89 magnitude and deeply reddened - only the central portion is visible...

 

My pic is an extreme crop of a 3ºx2º image to about 30'x20'.  I put in an arrow and have included a screen grab from Sky Safari of the same field..  I think my focus was a bit soft but this was only 18º above my horizon.....

 

AstroTech65mm Quad APO, Canon 60Da, single 4 minute exposure....ISO 1600..

Meeeeee!  30'x20' field.  SS says the glob has a diameter of 9.9' so I think I have only got the central portion of it.

 

Extremely reddened from its light passing 21 000 light years through one of the dustiest parts of the sky.  Amazed I even got it at all..

 

Anyone else with better skills and equipment than mine have a B86 pic in your files? You probably have a Dj-2 as well.

 

It would be interesting to see yours..
