Cygnus Delights

Recommended Posts

Started at 10.45 still not fully dark aligned with Vega and Arcturus, had some clusters to get but went for doubles first let the sky darken.

16 Cygni (SAO 0318 98)  Wide white/gold pair.

26 Cygni (SAO 0490 98)  Orange and a green/blue pair here.

29 Cygni (SAO 0696 78)  White/blue primary with orange secondary.

49 Cygni (SAO 0703 62) Tight this one used a 4.5mm to be sure of the split x262  Gold/Orange tiny grey speck

52 Cygni (SAO 0704 67) Orange/Red and a grey dot.

59 Cygni (SAO 0503 35) Lovely triple here Orange with two blueish companions.

61 Cygni (0709 19) Piazzi`s Flying Star one of the first whose distance was measured (Through its Parallax) in 1838 by Freidrick Bessel.  Yellow/Orange twins cracking sight.

S 786 and Σ 2789 (SAO 0333 34) these make up a double double  S 786 is a wide pair yellow and blue and Σ 2789 are a pair of twin stars much like Rams eyes.

Σ 2671 (SAO 0324 55)  White and yellow/orange companion.

Σ 2741 (SAO 0330 34) Both stars are blue white but had use a 6.4mm  X184 to split it.

ΟΣ 437 (SAO 0712 30)  Yellow twins at  X147

μ Cygni (SAO 0899 40)  white/Blue  pair  at X295

δ Cygni (SAO 0487 96)  Pale Yellow tiny companion had to Barlow my 6.4mm giving X368  with a hair split so very close.

Onto the clusters first up

NGC 6910 " Rocking Horse"  Brilliant sight the shape was unmistakable.

NGC 7063  Just a patch of a few stars  not bad.

NGC 7082  10 - 12 stars in the field nothing to shout about.

NGC 6834  Sparse 

NGC 6866 "Kite Cluster"  This was better easy to see the shape.

NGC 6819  Blue/white stars here nice toook at with the colours.

NGC 6811  This is very interesting cluster of stars and yet it looks like it has nothing in the middle just a hole wonderful sight.

M 29  Sparse 10 - 12 stars here.

M 39 This is wonderful pairs of stars all through this amazing.

NGC 6826 (Blinking Nebula) This was a brilliant site with averted vision its there and I could see colour blue/green but that could be wishful thinking look straight at it, it disappears.

Finished off with 3 I looked at a couple of days ago and was disappointed.

M57 Blue ring in the sky just handing there looked brilliant in my 15mm

M13 Stars popping out everywhere did not take mag very good 15mm at X 78  was sufficient.

M92 This is a much missed globular as its in the shadow of its big brother M13 but it is a fine globular in its own right went to a 11mm here X 107 again individual stars popping out around the edges a very fine sight.

 

All in all a really good night and found out there is nothing wrong with the 5" it was just the seeing I am looking forward to the next night with this now.

The Blinking Planetary has become a favourite of mine over the past few weeks. I see similar tints in it to you. Nice central star as well !
