IC4406;PK319+15.114:22.4-44 09Planetary Nebula10.2>28"4.9KLYJuly 10 1999 Cataract250mm f5.6 Dobsonian9.7mmSPUHCLarge and squarish. Stands out more with the UHC. [Also observed April 17. 1999]
IC4406;PK319+15.114:22.4-44 09Planetary Nebula10.2>28"4.9KLY19 May 2001 Kangaloon250mm f5.6dobsonian32mmSWANoted that I could see it.
NGC564314:32.7-44 10Galaxy10.44.6' x 4.1'42MLY19 May 2001 Kangaloon250mm f5.6dobsonian32mmSWANoted that I could see it. [Also viewed it July 10 1999; and on 27 May 2006, when I noted it to be a large, bright, amorphous galaxy.]
NGC582215:05.2-54 21Open cluster6.5p40.0'1.8KLY6 May 2000 Cataract250mm f5.6dobsonian26mmPlosslLarge open cluster. I make out the profile of a dog's head with its nose pointing south. On the west edge of the cluster is a noticeably brighter field star.
NGC582415:04.0-33 04Globular Cluster9.06.2'77KLYJuly 10 1999 Cataract250mm f5.6 Dobsonian6.3mmPlosslBright hazy glow with a very bright centre. Doesn't resolve.
NGC587315:12.8-38 08Planetary Nebula11.03"16KLYApril 14 2007 Belanglo250mm f5.6 Dobsonian6mmSWAUHCThere is a 'Southern-Cross-shaped' group of 4 stars. The one that doesn't dim with the UHC filter was the nebula - at the 'Gamma-Crux' position.
NGC5882/PK327+10.115:16.8-45 39Planetary Nebula9.47"6.2KLY13 July 2002 Jerrara Dam250mm f5.6dobsonian9.7mmSPUHCSmall and spherical. Bluish.[Also July 14 2007 Belanglo: Bright, possibly slightly oval inner structure with a much fainter outer structure to almost double the inner diameter.]
NGC592715:28.0-50 40Globular cluster8.312.0'24KLY22 July 2000 Cataract250mm f5.6dobsonian26mmPlossl+2XBarlowLarge and distinct, but diffuse and not very resolvable around the bright centre.
NGC592715:28.0-50 40Globular cluster8.312.0'24KLY19 May 2001 Kangaloon250mm f5.6dobsonian32mmSWALarge and bright.
NGC598615:46.1-32 34Globular Cluster7.19.8'33KLYJuly 10 1999 Cataract250mm f5.6 Dobsonian9.7mmSPCan see the 12th magnitude foreground star and 13th magnitude star mentioned in Sky & Space June/July 1997. Starting to resolve well at this magnification.
NGC602616:01.4-34 32Planetary Nebula12.945"7.5KMLYJuly 17 1999Farmborough Heights 250mm f5.6 Dobsonian26mmPlossl/9.7mmSPUHCNeeded the UHC to find it. At higher power, can see central star and large nebula..
