In scanning the sky near M52, I was able to pick up a very weak, round 
nebulous area surrounding a moderately bright, approximately 9th magnitude 
star. However, at highest power I began to see  evidence of detail, although 
not exactly a "bubble". The round glow was much more evident at 
higher power in my suburban skies. A somewhat comma shaped appearance began 
to become evident, with a tail-like extension coming down on one 
side of the circular glow.
