Very bright planetary that shows some interesting details. At 342x the bright 
and slightly mottled central part vaguely resembles a 30x25 dumbbell elongated 
N-S! The E-W axis extends approx 40 and appears extremely faint, visible only 
with AV. No central star seen. The disk appears colourless.  Very beautiful 
planetary that is barely known due to its IC number and low position at 44.
