(IAAC) Another observing target?



This just came off the new "BigDob" mailing list... Seemed apropos!

Subject: Gyulbudaghian's Nebula
I was digging around the Vicker's CCD atlas (north)and I stumbled upon a
weird little nebula. Called "Gyulbudaghian's Nebula", its a variable
'cometary' nebula.
For those fools who want to see it, here's the FitsView generated
coordinates (based on SkyView downloaded images):
RA 20 45 58.5
Dec +67 58 19.6
It looks around 15 -16th magnitude (v), so rather difficult for the
visual observers. However, it has an interesting shape and seems to be
imbedded in a LSB cloud of bright nebulousity. It should make a good CCD
target.
