Hershel 400 Objects in Aquila


Abbreviations in the CON column are the IAU versions.
The column TYPE has following abbreviations:
OPNCL = open cluster PLNNB = planetary nebula GLOCL = globular cluster CL+NB = open cluster and nebulosity BRTNB = bright emission or reflection nebula
Hubble Classification for galaxies or GALXY where no classification existed.

In the Herschel Column the Classes are:
I = Bright Nebulae III = Very Faint Nebulae V = Very Large
Nebulae
VII = Pretty Much Compressed
Clusters of Large or Small Stars
II = Faint Nebulae IV = Planetary Nebulae VI = Very Compressed and Rich Clusters of Stars VIII = Coarsely Scattered

Observation Notes
6755 AQL OPNCL 19 07.8 +04 14 7.5 15.0' H VII 19 Large, not compressed, irregular shape and has nice chains of stars at 100X. 50 members counted. This object and 6756 both fit in the one degree field of my giant 38mm Erfle eyepiece. I called it the Double Cluster in Aquila. Both clusters are just visible in the 11 X 80 finder.
6756 AQL OPNCL 19 08.7 +04 41 10.6 4.0' H VII 62 Pretty small, much compressed, elongated, compact cluster at 165X. I counted 15 members resolved.
6781 AQL PLNNB 19 18.5 +06 32 11.8 111"X109" H III 743 Bright, Large, somewhat elongated at 100X. It is immediately obvious without the UHC filter. This planetary is shaped like the gibbous moon with the south side brighter in an arc. There is one star involved that stands out very nicely. The UHC filter helps some. I estimate its' size at one arc minute.
