I never tried to view the Helix from my suburban location, so I decided to give
it a try.  It was easily found with the OIII filter in between a pattern of 5
stars. The helix stood out well, and I was able to note a darker central region
but was not able to note much detail in the ring structure.  Without the filter
the object was not observable.
