NGC 7662 again
I never fail to be surprised as to how things have changed in, what to me at least, seems a very short time.
Having acquired a rather hurried image of NGC 7662 last night and posted it today, I was fascinated by its structure and central star.I did a bit of research and dug out my cherished copy of "Burnham's Celestial Handbook", wherein I found the attached photo, made I presume, in the pre-CCD age.
It was taken with a 42" reflector - - -
My hurried 1 minute or so exposure with an 8" and PD is attached also for reference.
I note that Nick also observed it too in his last post.
I also note that the drawing in Burnham was made with the 40" Yerkes refractor. Are you going to get one of these Nick?!
Incidentally NGC 7662 (=C22) is in Andromeda, not Pegasus as I reported earlier.
