Hi all:

Sh2-68 is a planetary nebula in Serpens that made its way into the Sharpless catalog (also cataloged as PN G030.6+06.2 and Simeiz 291):

Gregg,

Beautiful. You sure know how to find nebulae near bright stars.

Hi all

vdB 104 is a reflection nebula surrounding the 2.9 magnitude star sigma Scorpii. Sh2-9 is an emission nebula near the same star, so this is a combination of reflection/emission nebulosity:

Hi all:

Arp 136 sits adjacent to a pair of 6th magnitude blue stars. Its main component is NGC 5820 and is described by Arp as an "elliptical with nearby fragments". NGC 5820 shows a "streamer" to its southeast, possibly related to the nearby NGC 5821. A lot of fainter background galaxies dot the field:

Arp 38 (NGC 6412, UGC 10897 and others) is a nice spiral located approximately 74 million light-years away in Draco. In the ‘Spiral galaxies – companions on arms – low surface brightness companions’ class, it looks like Arp might have made a mistake. There doesn’t appear to be any companions. I have a feeling some of the knots in NGC 6412 were thought to be galaxies.

 

Luminance – 27x600s – 270 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

390 minutes total exposure – 6 hours 30 minutes
