Very interesting, I have heard people say to stay away from IC objects. Looks like you got this one. Very nice...

Nuncius,
That's a fine sketch of this excellent and often passed up planetary. I really like the subtle way you captured the 10th mag central star and outer ring.

Sketching objects like this will separate your observing skills from the novice crowd. I'm intimidated to think about it. Fantastic sketch!
