Hi Everyone,

Here is an image of NGC6822 in Sagittarius; Barnard's Galaxy. It is a very low surface birghtness galaxy that is difficult to image. Nontheless, it has some interesting features.

Tom, how high does this satellite galaxy get from your site? For me it only gets about 10 degrees high at best, I'd love to have a go at it though. That's one qulaity shot with some great equipment I have to add, I'll have a go i hope with my humble Canon 300D, and Celestron C80ED.

Great detail,
Regards,
Keith..

Kieth,

From my observatory in southeast Idaho, NGC6822 reaches an altitude of 31 degrees at its peak. It's a tough one to get for sure!
