I've done J320 and J900 with my 10" and they certainly are little
guys.  Another pair of small "planetary nebulae" in Cygnus are
Campbell's Star and the Footprint Nebula with the latter being the
most stellar of the whole bunch. While the Footprint is often listed
as a planetary nebula, I believe it is actually a reflection nebula.
Clear skies,  Sue
