Hi Lew & Steve,
I observed the above in my C-8 last Sunday, Monday & Tuesday nights along with
several other planetaries from my patio. I found NGC 1535 to be quite bright &
easy to spot. The OIII did nothing. Found it was good with my 17mm Plossl.
Fuzzy around the edges. Round. It was big & bright in my 10mm Plossl.
Questionable central star. Also nice with my 12.5mm Orthoscopic.
