With my 25 inch.
The double stranded arc is very nice and the overall ring best seen with an OIII filter. The NPB filter included the surrounding nebulosity.

This is very well recorded. I have seen several high resolutions photos of this target in Cygnus and you have recorded a great amount of detail visually. I would need to find a much darker site to see any of this.

A very interesting object. I will try to see you soon.

Very good My sketch of the Wolf-Rayet shell WR 134 .

I had no idea that a WR shell is such a beautiful object. Thank you!

Beautiful sketch Mel, you have encouraged me to chase down 134 !
Is there a pretty good observing site at CG Lake ?

a really great sketch of this Wolf-Rayet nebula in Cygnus!!!
Recently, this nebula has attracted deserved attention in astrophotography, and some great captures have been posted by Peter in https://www.astrobin.../full/4u4wku/B/
So, your sketch is not behind the AP.
This reminds me to read again you article "Visual Astronomy at the Telescope's Eyepiece", and to train my eyes even more.

This is an icredible result, Mel ! After having worked on this target extensively this summer I know how faint the OIII emissions around 270 degrees of the ring really are. The fact that you have been able to visualize what needs hours of exposure and heavy processing with "my" technique ist really astonishing and amazing. As Jiri already cited my color image I would like to link to an image of my OIII data representation on astrobin that underlines your fabulous result in the direct comparison: https://astrob.in/full/416693/0/.

Wow, what incredible digital images! Simply amazing - full of stars, as once said.
And a relief that my visual results match up well. Squinting until the nebulosity almost disappears resembles the visual appearance: fine details disappear, nebulosity is coarse grained, but faintly still visible.
As someone else once said, "We're gonna need a bigger boat".
