NGC 6822, also known as Barnard's Galaxy, is an irregular (as opposed to spiral or elliptical) galaxy in the constellation of Sagittarius. The seeing and transparency weren't very good the night this was shot, but the image came out ok nonetheless. NGC 6822, a member of the Local Group, is a relatively close neighbor of our own Milky Way galaxy, along with M31 (Andromeda) and others. The blue nebulous regions above Barnard's Galaxy (more visible in the higher-resolution image) are, from left to right: IC 1308, H25 V, and H25 I (Bubble Nebula). North is up.
