Object(s): NGC2022
Category: Planetary nebula.
Constellation: Orion
Data: mag 12.0  size 
Position: RA 05:42  DEC +09:05
Object found off Lambda-Orionis. The planetary nebula is siutated just east
of two magnitude 7/8 stars and is spaced about as far from the eastern most
star as the duo of stars are separated. Under severe light pollution and with
a 77mm aperture telescope, the object is barely visible with averted vision
and careful scrutiny. I observed the object for around 1-hour. With small 
aperture (i.e. 77mm) the UHC and OIII filters did not help - they rendered the
view too dim to identify NGC 2022.
