The reflection nebula NGC 6726/6727/6729 & IC 4812 and the dark nebulae Bernes 157, SL 39 and 41 are striking objects in the constellation Corona Australis. Together, they remind me a bit of a cosmic tadpole. NGC 6729 is especially interesting as Variable Nebula. He is related to the pre-main sequence star R Coronae Australis. Already in the constellation Sagittarius is the globular cluster NGC6723. Mosaic of two images.
