Hi All,

 

Cygnus is a very rich constellation for PNs.

Four of them are particulary interesting, depending on their brightness and structure.

 

Here are how I saw them, in a 10 inches SCT, and a 25 inches dobson.

Reports here:

NGC 6826: http://www.deepsky-d...2017/dsdlang/fr

NGC 7008: http://www.deepsky-d...7008/dsdlang/fr

NGC 7026: http://www.deepsky-d...7026/dsdlang/fr

NGC7027: http://www.deepsky-d...27-2/dsdlang/fr

 

Clear sky

Great sketches and fascinating targets, thanks Bertrand. Thanks to this timely post I have updated my target list for the new moon weekend!
