48X-NGC6526 Using the UHC filter the nebulosity is repeatedly seen. Using a
dark cape and slow panning the object is mush more detectable. It is still just
a featurless haze located almost equally between M8 and M20.Transparency is
falling, but M8 is still good while M20 is becoming washed out as a haze is
120X-NGC6526 appears as a barest hint of glowing nebulosity with the UHC
filter. The H-Beta and O-III filter don't seem to improve the contrast at all.
I cannot make the nebulosity with out the UHC filter.
220X-NGC6526 does not show at all, but there is lots of faint stars.
