I was trying to webcam Mars last night and the software crashed so I looked elsewhere and found the Eskimo Nebula looking bright and clear in Gemini. Sketch attached. A great object, and much clearer than most planetaries.

Good one. One of my favorite planetaries. I was thinking about trying it soon myself!
