The planetary nebula IC 1295 in the constellation of Scutum (The Shield)

This chart shows the small but rich constellation of Scutum (The Shield). Most of the stars that can be seen in a dark sky with the unaided eye are marked. The location of the faint planetary nebula IC 1295  is indicated with a red circle. This very dim object can be seen in larger amateur telescopes and is best viewed with an appropriate filter. It lies close to the brighter globular star cluster NGC 6712.
