Category: Planetary nebula.
Data: mag 12.0 size 47" x 37"
Position: RA : DEC :
PN is enclosed by 4 stars: GSC 1639:1447 (10.4), GSC 1639:2261(12.0), GSC
1639:1018(11.4) and GSC 1639:1048 (12.8). 30x showed gray puff. 110x showed
round shape with averted vision. 146x showed oval shape with direct vision.
The 3 stars are seen with the 4th 12.8th magnitude star GSC 1639:1048 winking
in and out. 220x gave best view, large oval shape, 4 stars now clearly seen
with direct vision. 293x also gave best view with same brightness as 220x.
Dim smudge at all magnifications. Known as the "Blue Flash" planetary, I
never saw any “flashes” :-(.
