NGC6441 PK353-04.1/ Haro 1-36 Odd Pair

I'm a sucker for more than one deep sky celestial wonder in the field of view . As such when I was looking at Ptolemy's Cluster in Scorpius I saw these 2 closely paired. Above and right of the bright star H6630 is NGC 6441 which is a 7th magnitude Globular Cluster appearing in the constellation Scorpius. It is 38 thousand light years from our solar system.
NGC 6441's apparent size is approximately 9.6 arcminutes, corresponding to a physical diameter of 106 light years.
Below and just to the right of H6630's diffraction spike you will see a blue star which is Haro 1-36/PK 353-4.1 ,a 12th magnitude Planetary Nebula .
86 x2 sec Light Subs and 9 Darks from Bortle 5 Skies.Total integration 2:52 Min with 20" F5 "Zamar". Stacked in Sequator , minimal post edit in Gimp.
