Sorry been out of town for a few days.

Actually I have an observation of 6781 and 6803 to enter. I picked a couple
of objects to enter that did not have any observations entered for them
yet. Intestingly I have also been going after some of the fainter
planetaries. Has anyone on the list used a O-III filter to verify some of
the smaller planetaries ? Also I had the opportunity to use a special prism
to find a very small planetary last week. It appeared to be three small
prisms glues together like this ( ^ V ^). Does anyone have any details on a
prism like this ?
