12 November, 1977  C-8 from Switzerland, Fl.
Trans - excellent, seeing - very good to excellent, dark sky

Small, fairly faint planetary.  Featureless disk at 100x.  Easy at 100x.
No details at 160x or 222x.
27 December, 1989  C-8 from Lilburn, Ga.
Trans - very good, seeing - fair, heavy light pollution

Fairly bright planetary at 100x.  Almost stellar at 62x.  Good at 200x.
Circular, fairly small, but surface brightness enough to allow higher
power.  Slightly oval shaped at 200x.  At low power appears as glow around
star, but this impression disappears at 100x when planetary appears uniformly
bright with slight, dim ring seems visible.  UHC filter and 200x give the
best view.
