NGC 7492 - 18.11.2022 at 20.15 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 111063

Visibility I / V

Toni Veikkolainen, Kari Laihia, Juha Blad, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

I had to try photographing this low-lying globular mass at the beginning of the November talks on Tähtikallio. The object came into view dim and scattered and could almost be mistaken for a dense open cluster of stars.
