NGC 6934 Delphinus

Recommended Posts

Discovered by William Hershel in 1785, globular cluster NGC 6934, is a fairly bright small round hazy target visually. At 50,000 light years away, it is one of the more remote visually observable globular's. Stars begin to resolve from this hazy glow at high power with larger aperture, at small to moderate sized aperture and medium to low power, the globular makes a finely composed rich field subject. Delphinus is nicely situated south by south west in the evening autumn sky. During a recent session I applied various magnification increasing to 267x but settled on an medium power view at 123x for a fine wide field perspective. Delphinus has another notable yet smaller globular cluster NGC 7006.
