NGC/IC Objects

NGC 7094: Planetary Nebula (Pegasus) RA: 21h 36.9m / DEC: +12° 47'.3
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

Pegasus is better known for his galaxies than his planetary nebulae. However, this planetary is a fine little gem. NGC 7094 shows a 90" diameter shell surrounding a 13th magnitude central star. The nebulosity becomes quite striking when an OIII filter is used. My drawing was made at 129X, with and without the OIII, in my 10-inch Newtonian. The relatively bright star 7' north of the planetary is listed at 10.0 magnitude in the Guide Star Catalog (GSC). Take that number with a grain of salt as the GSC is not known for accurate photometry. NGC 7094 can be found 1.8 degrees northeast of M15.
