This fairly bright planetary appears as an elongated oval of ~50x30. Three 
stars are embedded in the nebula. The brightest is located at the NE tip of the 
oval, the second brightest is the 14,4magv central star and the faintest star 
is located at the WSW-end of the planetary. The nebula also appears divided 
into 2 slightly brighter lobes that run along the long axis of the oval. 
Those details required averted vision and were very subtle. 
I saw a still fainter star ~ 20 ENE of the planetary. Observation at 342x
