"Blinking Planentary" Bright Round planetary that does not "blink"
for this observer. I could easily hold this object steady in the center
of the eyepiece without using averted vision. At 75 x it is easy to
overlook this planetary in unsteady skies, stepping the power up to
90x definitely reveals a small disk, at 150x this planetary is a small
blushish ball that is not quite uniform in appearance. This planetary
gives an impression of being more 3D than other planetaries.
