19 November, 1989  C-8 from Lilburn, Ga.
Trans - fair with slight ground haze, seeing - very good, heavy light
pollution.
Fairly bright planetary.  Easily seen in not quite dark sky.  Very prominent
central star with fainter star just outside nebula.  Ill-defined edges make
determining exact shape difficult.  Star becomes less obvious at low power,
but nebula is more difficult also.  Best viewed at powers between 100x-200x.
