NGC 6822 - Barnard's Galaxy (R.F. Joyce Observatory; 25-07-2017)

The second Barnard object for the night is an irregular dwarf galaxy, ~160 Mly away in Sagittarius. It is unusual in several respects, including the number of HII (pink-ish) regions associated with it. Photo stuff: 30 frames @180s; ISO 800; Canon 60Da on RCX400 16" f/8 with .70 focal reducer.

      Looks like a cocoon. Are you gonna add more data to it?
    • Gary Steel
      Yes, this was a "grab it at the end of the night" photo, just to see what I could get. It needs about twice as much time but should be great after that. It would be good to see the pink HII regions pop out more.
