||400mm f4.5 Dobsonian||9mm Nagler||Thought I could just see a very faint glow. Using Volume 3 of The Night Sky Observer's Guide, (
Cooper et al), what I was seeing fitted the book's description.

||250mm f5.6 Dobsonian||13.8mmSWAl||UHC||Stellar but easy to pick as it doesn't dim with the UHC filter

||250mm f5.6 Dobsonian||6.3mmPlossl||Tenuous and surprisingly hard to see well. A bright field star helps drown it out.

||400mm f4.5 Dobsonian||8-24mm Baader zoom||Elliptical N-S with a bright star on the following edge. Fairly uniform in brightness.
Higher magnification resolves some individual stars.

||300mm f6 Dobsonian||26mm Plossl||OIII; UHC||Distinct and mis-shapen planetary. Reminiscent of the telescope view of the Crab Nebula. Star at
one edge; not sure if this is the illuminating star. Has a bright 'bar' surrounded by wispy nebulosity. Distinct without the filters: both enhance it slightly.

||300mm f6 Dobsonian||26mm Plossl||Very large, bright, obvious and oblong-shaped. Very nice! Bright star toward one end of the oblong.

||400mm 4.5 Dobsonian||26mmDX; 13.8mmSWA||UHC; OIII||At low power, stands out prominently in a rich field; more prominent with the UHC. At higher power,
with no filter, oblong-shaped roughly E-W with a star on the W edge. With the UHC the star disappears and the nebula is more prominent. Best view with the OIII, which
shows possibly two-lobes to the nebula.
