More nebulous goodness this March, and this image is packed with it in a variety of different astronomical forms.

A galactic collision that's caused plenty of confusion from Owen this month. A tough challenge for the large scope. Can you split them?

Wolfgang Steinicke would appreciate your observations of NGC 6781 for his Object of the Season column in the Deep-Sky Observer.

A wide pair in Draco and something much tighter for southern observers in Vela. Plenty of colours to discuss in both multiples from Bob this March.
