Longmore 16 is a infrequented planetary nebula in Scorpius ; magnitude:13.3 ; size: 1.4' ; roundish with slight elongation; doesn't seem to be as dim as the magnitude given, OIII filter works well on this object.  A 12th magnitude star sits right on it's northern edge. I used a 8mm Ethos at 198x with a Lumicon OIII  Gen 3 filter with my 14.5Starstructure Dob f/4.3
