NGC7027 – PK84-3.1
Object Type: Planetary Nebula
Location: Barcelona – Spain
Located in a poor stellar field, I could see NGC7027 at 235x little, homogeneous bright and with an elongated shape, almost as a rectangle. But I could not perceive any halo around the bright planetary core. With the OIII filter I could see the nebula with more contrast, but no details.
With 313x, better adapted to the dark and using averted vision, I saw with satisfaction an evanescence halo around the core, which seems to split in half, like an ?8?.
Easy planetary to detect, but difficult to see details on it.
