NGC 6946

On this page I collect my observations of the spiral galaxy NGC 6946 (Fireworks Galaxy) in the constellation Cepheus.

 

Introduction

The spiral galaxy NGC 6946 (Fireworks Galaxy) in the constellation Cepheus is according to Stoyan 40' distant from the open star cluster NGC 6939, too far to see both in the eVscope at once. But with the Vespera, you can observe both together.

Size: 10' (Stoyan)
Distance: 20 mio. light years (Stoyan)
Rating: * (Stoyan)
