On this page I collect my observations of the planetary nebula NGC 6741 (Phantom Streak Nebula) in the constellation Aquila.

 

Introduction

The planetary nebula NGC 6741 (Phantom Streak Nebula) in the constellation Aquila is so extremely small in the eVscope that I was not able to find it on the eVscope photo. Neither did the plate solving Website Astrometry.net! But I was able to identify it with the help of Stellarium.
