A small bright planetary that was easy in the 8" and 80mm. Not quite
stellar, but seemingly like a slightly out of focus star. Round, with
little detail, and a slight "neon" glow that I find most planetaries
to have. I noticed at 169 and 406X a bit of oblong shape to the south
east - very faint (?). Several similar mag stars are in the same FOV
which makes identification easy.
