Notes: Still taking advantage of the southern objects before the moon moves into the southern skies (see B 316, NGC 6790). I first ran across this odd little object in the 1990's. Found as GN, in the "Atlas of Galactic Nebulae", Vol. II,  by Thorsten Neckel and Hans Vehrenberg, they also labeled it as 'Parsamyan' 21. See my 14.5" film image.
