IC1454 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: IC1454, Abell 81, PK117+18.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 22h42m25.00s / +80°26'31.96"
Brightness / Size: v14.8 mag / 0.6x0.6'
120mm f/5, 40x + [OIII], Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
Rather faint & small, roundish with fading edges (?). At 75x with UHC filter also quite well visible with averted vision. Not visible without any filter.

MODERATE
12.5" f/4.5, 160x + [OIII], Bortle 3, SQM-L 21.3
Bright, still visible with direct vision, evenly bright, round, well defined.

M1-80 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: M1-80, PK107-2.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 22h56m19.91s / +57°09'21.07"
Brightness / Size: b13.4 mag / 0.1x0.1'
8" f/6, 100x + UHC, Bortle 5, SQM-L 20.5
With UHC filter very small, roundish brightening near to a field star. With [OIII] filter the nebula appeared slightly larger.
MODERATE

M2-51 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: M2-51, PK103+0.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 22h16m03.89s / +57°28'33.75"
Brightness / Size: v13.5 mag / 1.2x1.2'
8" f/6, 80x + [OIII], Bortle 6-, SQM-L 18.9
Roundish, appeared slightly brighter toward the middle, but overall rather evenly bright. Higher magnification up to 200x didn't show more details. At 200x without any filter the nebula was not visible.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 5, NELM 5.9, SQM-L 20.7
At 80x rather small, roundish, quite faint with diffuse edges. At 150x well visible with averted vision, slightly condensed. Glimpsed a stellar brightening within the nebula (central star?). Filter (UHC or [OIII]) helps, especially near cities.
MODERATE

M2-52 (PN)

DSS

Name: M2-52, PK103+0.2
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 22h20m30.43s / +57°36'19.64"
Brightness / Size: v14.0 mag / 0.2x0.2'
8" f/6, 150x + UHC, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.2 FAILED

M2-55 (PN)

Name: M2-55, PK116+8.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 23h31m52.71s / +70°22'10.11"
Brightness / Size: v14.3 mag / 1.0x0.8'
120mm f/5, 75x + UHC, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
Very faint, roundish, evenly bright.

NGC40 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC40, PK120+9.1, H4.58
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 00h13m01.01s / +72°31'19.09"
Brightness / Size: v11.5 mag / 1.2x0.8'
8" f/6, 200x, Bortle 6
At 37x visible with averted vision as relatively bright, small, extended, round nebula. At 80x the 11.5m central star could be seen, whereas the nebula is evident with averted vision. Nice view at 200x! Filter can help at lower magnification.

NGC7076 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC7076, Abell 75, PK101+8.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 21h26m23.54s / +62°53'31.83"
Brightness / Size: - / 1.0x1.0'
120mm f/5, 40x + [OIII], Bortle 3, SQM-L 21.3
Pretty faint, roundish, evenly bright, small.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 80x + [OIII], Bortle 3, SQM-L 21.3
Pretty bright, roundish to slightly oval, evenly bright.

NGC7139 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC7139, PK104+7.1, H3.696
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep
Coordinates: 21h46m08.59s / +63°47'29.45"
Brightness / Size: v13.3 mag / 1.3x1.3'
8" f/6, 100x + [OIII], Bortle 4+
Already visible at 37x with [OIII] filter with averted vision. At 100x without filter barely seen with averted vision. Extremely faint. With [OIII] filter fairly faint, round brightening. Obviously extended, evenly bright.
MODERATE

NGC7354 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC7354, PK107+2.1, H2.705
Type: PN
Constellation: Cep

Brightness / Size: v12.2 mag / 0.4x0.3'
8" f/6, 100x, Bortle 5
Barely visible with direct vision. Roundish, evenly bright. UHC/[OIII] filter helps.
