Object name: NGC7006
NGC 7006 is the other globular in Delphinus is much more distant, being far beyond the normally considered radius of the galaxy's halo. It is thought to be about 125 thousand light years from the galaxy's core and over 135 thousand light years from us. Still, it is a surprisingly bright object, easily seen in a 6" scope. But at its great distance, I've never seen even a hint of resolution of any of its stars in my 10" scope. It is just a ball of light visually. Again, like NGC 6934 I imaged this one at 0.5" per pixel, but on a slightly better night. It was discovered by William Herschel on August 21, 1784. It is in the original H400 program. My log from June 14, 1985 on a fair but humid night with my 10" f/5 at up to 180x reads; "Small blobular cluster, rapidly brighter toward the core. No hint of resolution. Seems brighter than the H400 writer indicates. I've seen it easily in my 6" f/12."
