234X - The PNe appears as a fuzzy blob. There is a centeral star visable in moments of good seeing. There is an dim outer shell brightening ito a bright inner shell and a distinct annular hole. Ther is a very fint (15 mag?) star on the bright inner ring. It is steady with averted vision, but the faint outer shell requires averted vision and it is quite difficult.
