George Ogden Abell’s classic catalog of planetary nebulae contains 86 objects which are quite faint and challenging for avid deep sky observers.
A good example of what to expect when tracking down these elusive nebulae is the ghostly Abell 72 seen here.
Delphinus is a fair way north from my observing site, but the sky conditions on the night offered up some good transparency which assisted in observations.
