OBJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMAGE SESSION
Discovered by William Herschel on August 25th 1791, and later confirmed as a planetary by Francis Pease in 1917. NGC 6804 is a fairly faint object and has a physical diameter of 1.3 light years. The planetary lies in a very crowded are of the sky and it can be easily located at 5 degrees west form Altair. A very small object for the resolution of my set up, nevertheless the image presents some details in the inner structure.
