Description:
Every once in a while, I like to try to wring every photons out of my
TV-102 and line up every single photons ...

Listed as small 18" PN at mag 13!  22x gets the FOV but canít see it.  30x 
still canít see it.  Definitely a dim disc at 110x and 146x.  176x starts to 
show as oval.  Best view at 220x and 293x which retain equal brightness.  Hint 
of the 14th magnitude central star, but more like my "central" imagination.
