Takahashi Epsilon 180 telescope, Canon 20Da camera, 3-minute exposure.

6217 Arp185 Galaxy Arp185 (NGC6217) Arp185 (NGC6217) on the night of Tuesday June 16, 2020. To the east of Arp185 on the left edge of the image is UGC10509 showing a type Ia supernova. The supernova was "independently discovered" and reported based on this image. It was later ascertained the supernova had been discovered by two large professional search teams on June 1, 2020. It is now known as supernova 2020lql.

6520 & Barnard 86 Baade's Window Open cluster and dark nebula near the center of the Milky Way Baade's Window on the evening of Friday September 7, 2018 The Sky X shows a slightly dfferent region for Baaede's Window. In this version it is centered around NGC6520 and Barnard 86.

6522 & 6528 Baade's Window Globular Clusters near the center of the Milky Way Baade's Window Walter Baade was unable to observe the Galactic center itself due to obscuring dust, but he found regions of less obscuration close to the heart of the Milky Way, including “Baade’s window,” which is centered around NGC 6528 (left) and NGC 6522 (right) in Sagittarius. The bright star off the frame south of NGG6528 is Gamma Sgr (10 Sgr) magnitude 3.63.
6541 Caldwell 78 Globular Cluster NGC6541  
6543 Cat' s Eye Nebula; Caldwell 6 Planetary Nebula Cat's Eye Nebula NGC6543 is the tiny planetary nebula to the right of center. Next to it is the irregular galaxy IC4677. On the left edge of the image is NGC6552.
