Phil Harrington's Cosmic Challenge for August is the extremely difficult planetary nebula GJJC-1 (PK 009-07.1) contained within the bright globular cluster M22 in Sagittarius.

Wow...that’s a great challenge. My largest scope is 12” so I’ll leave this to Erik to try!

Nice challenge. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that, despite viewing M22 hundreds of times. When this pesky bright moon disappears I’ll give it a try. Thanks Dave!
