NGC 6820 is a beautiful emission nebula located in the constellation Vulpecula. It surrounds a bright open cluster, designated as NGC 6823.


We imaged this target from a Bortle 9 white zone... our backyard in Las Vegas! We spent a total of 5 hours and a half imaging this object in narrowband using our refractor telescope.
