Forming a triangle with M11 and M26 in Scutum is this interesting pair of objects. NGC6712 is a tiny globular cluster. In the same field is the planetery nebula IC1295. At magnitude 12.7, it was invisible without an OIII filter.

The planetary is not really seen on the image, but it is among the little parallelogram of stars up from bottom left.
