Personal "rating" this aperture: C/C+
Dim, but quite noticeable nebulosity surrounding primarily three
triangular placed, tightly clustered stars, not very impressive.
Interesting to note that the deepsky filter made it harder to
see the nebulosity, and the UHC filter all but knocked it out.
Certainly reflection and not emission.
