120mm f/5, 75x + [OIII], Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.1
Probably there was occasionally an extremely faint haze, but I am not sure.

FAILED
8" f/6, 80x + [OIII], Bortle 3-, SQM-L 21.2
Roundish, pretty faint, evenly bright.

MODERATE
16" f/4.5, 100x + [OIII], Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
At 56x with [OIII] filter round, evenly bright. At 100x with [OIII] filter barely visible with direct vision, shape hardly perceptible. A star (central star?) was seen within the nebula. At 100x with UHC filter the nebula appeared pretty faint.

EASY
René Merting
12.5" f/4.5, 72x + [OIII], SQM-L 21.5
bei 72x und [OIII] ist indirekt ein schwacher diffuser Nebel um den vorher ausgemachten Zentralstern sichtbar - er wirkt rund - indirekt ist er mitunter länger haltbar - mit UHC ist er auch sichtbar, aber noch schwächer und an der Wahrnehmungsgrenze
MODERATE
