- Description: A pair of contrasting nebula in Vulpecula. Messier 27 is the "bright blob"
on the left side of the picture. A close-up of this planetary nebula can be
seen here in more detail. In contrast, NGC6820 is a faint emission nebula in the upper right hand
corner of the picture and is quite faint even in this long exposure. It is surrounding a nice open
cluster known as NGC6823 which is fairly bright at magnitude 7.1 and 12 arc minutes across. Scattered
throughout the image are a few dark nebula as well as a few bright open clusters.
