Description:
 At 416x in my C8 I could see a faint outer light greyish area that
surrounded 3 stellar like points. One of the points that looked like the "mouth"
were slightly elongated similar to a close double star. The other point
was just unresovable. I thought I could detect faint streamers from
the center to the outer edges of the nebula, but I dismissed this as
psychological.
