Description:
The Cat's Eye Nebula. For some reason, I have never observed this Pn
thru large aperture before. 2 'coils' readily apparent, overlapping
each other at 45 degree angles. Central star was certainly a
direct-vision object. Power really reveals detail in moments of good
seeing. Color was a strong green - "Kermit The Frog Green" is the best
way to describe it. Beautiful Object with a plethora of detail for
medium to large apertures.
