Lew, here are some more results from searching for the string
"blinking" in my observations. From Canis Major:
IC  2165  pretty Bright, Small, Round, found at 165X. Greenish,
brighter central section, dimmer outer shell at 320X. Slight
blinking effect. So few objects show the "blinking effect",
they are certainly worth mentioning...  -Steve Coe
