Quote:NGC6781 III-743 10/17/2007 21:30 UT; Pickering 7, NELM 5.5, SQM 20.516" SCT @ 260X, UHCGood size planetary but with fairly low surface brightness. Circular shape with slight brightening to S and marked fading to N. Slight minima to center, more pronounced at 375x (12T4) or with UHC at 260x. Fleeting hints of several foreground stars, but nothing confirmed at 510x. Ghost of a central star, perhaps visible 5% of the time in averted, offset slightly to E of center.
