NGC 6853  M27  PN  Sagitta  Mag 8.1  Only looked for a minute or two, but 
it was worth it.  Low in the sky so without a filter I actually saw just the 
dumbbell shape dominantly.  When it is higher, in a 10 is ALWAYS football 
shaped.  Dropped in the UHC filter and the dumbbell sharpened flanked by its 
wings on either side.  O-III had better contrast, but a bit fainter.
