Re: (IAAC) Obj: NGC 6939 - Inst: Orion 6" Dob

William, thanks for posting this log. BTW, check out this open cluster again
on a dark night from a rural spot - it holds a surprise! The surprise is a
lovely little mag 10 galaxy, NGC 6946, a mere 40' SE of the open cluster...
Quite an interesting site, especially as these two objects can appear quite
similar to each other in the right conditions - what I have heard called the
ultimate three-dimensional contrast. :)
Clear skies!
