Description:
Easy to find and quite dim in my light polluted yard.  With the OIII, it easily
came into view. It was standing on end with the brighter lobe on the bottom and
the smaller lobe on top.  Not much detail at 58x, but at 157x the 2 lobes were 
almost seperated in the center with some internal detail noted in the bottom 
lobe.
