vdB114, 116, 117, 120, 121; Sagittarius 
Takahashi FSQ-106 f/5 refractor 
KAI-11000XCM SBIG STL 
Total Exposure Time: 2 hours 
June 2012; Inkom, ID 
Comments: This skyscape shows a region of Sagittarius that has these 5, small van den Bergh objects. They are noted with small arrows and run consecutively left to right. Because they are small, and without much interesting form, I did not shoot higher resolution images of them; the exception is vdB120. Cropped and 200% enlarged images of vdB114, 116, 117 and 121 are included below. M17, the Swan Nebula, is seen in the lower right corner of the main image.
