NGC663018:32.6-63 17Galaxy15.00.3' x 0.2'July 14 2007 Belanglo250mm f5.6 DobsonianFull rangeWas not sure. Used all eyepieces. There was a very small possibly non-stellar smudge. [On Aug 11 2007 I looked at this object again from the same location. Perhaps seeing conditions were better. I noted a bright object, solid white, that maintained its brightness with a UHC filter. I used the filter because the Herald-Bobroff Astroatlas shows this as a Planetary Nebula]
