Thank you for another cosmic challenge. NGC 1535 is a favorite of mine, particularly in a large scope. As you say, its one of the most beautiful planetaries..
I locate it by starting at Zaurak, gamma Eradini (mag 3) and moving 4 degrees (one Telrad diameter) towards Rigel. NGC1535 is almost on a direct line from Zaurak and Rigel.
I do not believe I've seen NGC1538 so If it ever clears up, I have to give it a try.
Happy New Years

Great target Phil. Definitely missed its presence in the past, so I appreciate your exposing its presence. jd
