In Vulpecula, not far to the west of M27, The Dumbell Nebula, lies a large area of hydrogen emission catalogued as Sh2-86 is located around the open cluster NGC6823.

To the north east (bottom left) is the smaller fainter area of hydrogen Sh2-87, while filamentary structure to the bottom left of the frame can just be seen, which was catalogued in 1976 as Du 27 by R. Dubout-Crillon. Within SH2-86 itself is the small yellowish reflection nebula NGC6820, which is small but visible on this scale.
