NGC 6804 was a surprise looking like an elongated irregular nebulosity perhaps about a minute of arc across. The nebula was diffuse but the northern side was definitely brighter than the southern and it had a distinctive irregularity to it, the southern edge was smoother. The real surprise was the star field, the nebula itself had three stars associated, the central star of magnitude 14 was easily seen plus a magnitude 14 star on the eastern tip and a slightly fainter magnitude 14.5 star virtually on the western tip then a fainter magnitude 16 star actually on the western tip. The rest of the field had a multitude of much fainter stars, it just seemed to go on forever and quite impossible to position, the main stars on the observation itself were difficult enough to try and accurately position.
