At 342x this planetary shows a very strange shape. The brighter center is 
almost rectangular and divided into 2 lobes. This rectangle extends about 
10x15 NW-SE. There is a very bright spot in the WNW corner of the brighter 
lobe. This spot looks almost like a dislocated central star. The opposite lobe 
is not as bright but clearly divided by a dark center from the bright NW part. 
The bright inner part of 7027 is surrounded by a faint round halo that 
stretches out some 5+ arc seconds. The halo is visible only with averted 
vision. The color of NGC 7027 is very strong green-blue.NGC7027 is another 
bright PN that is easily observed under a moonlit sky. Beautiful!
