NGC 1241 in the 13" f/5.6 at 150X is faint, pretty small,
elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 135 and gradually a little brighter in
the middle.  The elongation may be from the fact that 1242 is
attached to 1241 and I never split them into two seperate
objects on a 7/10 night for seeing and transparency.
Clear Skies,
