Description: A bright planetary nebula that looks nearly starlike with the 
40mm Ploessl and shows an oval outline with 6mm LV. No structure was seen, 
but it was clearly nonstellar and elongated. The planetary showed a 
blueish tint to me, but this was very subtle and could have been nothing 
more than imagination. Very close to NGC7009 you should find M73 and M72, 
but I didn't find them that night.
