Very poor skies - last object before clouded over.

The central star is quite obvious in this image, though. Reportedly it is about magnitude 14.

Nice image Callum. 

I first came across this planetary by chance in 2013 when observing the nova in Delphinus. They appear together in my image taken with a DSLR through a four inch F/5 Newtonian.

Nice catch Mike - its a pity the seeing was not better for me. Hopefully will get another chance to observe it.

That's a nice image of NGC 6905 despite the poor weather conditions. We can only hope things improve as the season turns to Autumn next week.
