Planetary nebula, very easy object. Central star not detected. Size 17". Magnitude 9.2. I could not detect any structures. I could not detect brighter parts. To me it seemed an object of equal brightness. Responds very well to an O-III filter. It is called Blue Snowball because of its bluish colour. From my light-polluted site, I could not detect any colour.
