Deep Sky Update – August 2022
Sorry for a very brief update this month, and apologies to anyone that might have been in touch but I have not got back to yet.
August Object of Interest
Sharpless 2-91 attracted a lot of interest! I was very pleased to see so many terrific images of the nebula. I know a few members were unsuccessful – but worth another try when conditions improve perhaps. There were a couple of visual observations but nothing convincing by one member with a 20” Obsession and another with a 14”.
And you can check out all the other images posted by looking at the OOI Gallery page
OOI for September
For September I have chosen the planetary nebula NGC 7026 in Cygnus. There are a few observations in the archive but more would be appreciated. HST images of NGC 7026 show an interesting structure – so it will be good to see what amateurs might achieve.
Clear, dark skies,
