At 342x the PN almost matches 2022 in shape and brightness. Ring structure 
visible with averted vision. The ring seems to be open along the long axis 
(obvious on W side). No central star visible. Nice and easy target less than   
south of OC NGC2453, which is very compact and shows about 20+ stars at 342x.
