NGC 7009 (Saturn Nebula) is a spectacular planetary in Aquarius. At 50x is easily detectable from a star, but I didn't managed to see its characteristic, elongated shape. You can't miss it, it's the brightest object in a one-degree area. Using 120x I've managed to see its elongated shape, but no other details.
