Howdy all; On my trip to Sentinel last Sunday night, I observed this nebula in Vulpecula. It was not difficult in the Nexstar 11. You might add it to your ever-growing observing list. Steve Coe Sentinel NS 11 S=5 T=7 22mm Pan no filter faint, large, elongated 2X1, nebulosity with 12 stars involved. It is the central 50% of the field of view. With the UHC filter and the same eyepiece the nebula is much more contrasty, but that comes at a price. The filter gets rid of about 50% of the nebulosity. This is unusual for the UHC, in general I have always seen more nebulosity with the filter, or at least the same size nebula and better contrast with the UHC filter in place. Weird. I piggybacked the 100mm f/6 RFT refractor onto the Nexstar 11 on this night and with the 14mm Ultra Wide eyepiece the nebula is extremely faint and small, it just matches the size of the nebula shown on the Uranometria chart #162. Averted vision makes the nebula grow in size, the UHC filter is no help with this object and the small scope. -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
