Field: 74'Seeing: 3
Background sky: 3NE lim mag: 6.4
Visuality: IIHeight: 59°

Description: A very beautiful nebula around 52 Cygni. The northern part is the brightest, a faint hint of filamentary on the west edge. The southern part is divided in two arms. O-III helps a lot.

Location: Ahola, Joutseno, Finland

Instrument: Newton 110/805 mm
Magnification: 47xFilter: UHC
Field: 64'Seeing: 2
Background sky: 2NE lim mag: 6.2
Visuality: IIHeight: 58°
Weather: +12°C, moist and random clouds
Description: The brightest part of NGC 6960 is pretty difficult without the UHC filter due to glare from the 4 mag star 52 Cygni. With the filter it appears as a fuzz arc, the borders are very sharp on the north and get fuzzier near by 52 Cyg. Clouds came after 20 min observing and ruined this session.

Description: Sumu näkyi erittäin hienosti OIII -suotimella suoraan katsoen. 17mm okulaarilla sumussa oli havaittavissa selviä kuitumaisia rakenteita, etenkin sumun reunat korostuivat kirkkaampina. Piirroksessa näkyy ainoastaan 52Cyg -tähden pohjoispuoli, koska kenttä oli liian pieni koko sumun piirtämiseen. Revontulet haittasivat ajoittain sumun näkymistä.
