Small and brighter than the magnitude suggests. The planetary is
nicely situated is a triangle of stars. I easily picked this out at
110x. Jumping to 220x showed a hint of a annular appearance with
averted vision. This effect much like a blinking planetary only in
this case the annularity blinked in and out.
