Galaxy (dwarf Irr)
15.4’ x 14,.2’
NGC 6822 was discovered by E.E. Barnard in 1884. This irregular dwarf galaxy is a member of the Local Group. There is much dust in this region of the sky, as can be seen clearly in the above image. The dust is a part of our milky way. Because we are looking through this dust at Barnard's Galaxy, the colour of NGC6822 is more reddish than it would have been without dust: E(B-V)=0.24 mag.
