Abell 39 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: Abell 39, PK47+42.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Her
Coordinates: 16h27m33.71s / +27°54'33.50"
Brightness / Size: v15.6 mag / 2.9x2.9'
120mm f/5, 75x + UHC, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
SQM-L 20.6: Observation very marginal. At 75x with UHC filter I glimpsed a round, even haze, but unsure retrospectively.

FAILED
8" f/6, 37x + [OIII], Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.2
SQM-L 20.9: Rather faint and less evident, relatively large, round, evenly bright. At 80x with UHC filter similar, with [OIII] filter even a bit fainter.
MODERATE

IC4593 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: IC4593, PK25+40.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Her
Coordinates: 16h11m44.54s / +12°04'17.06"
Brightness / Size: v10.8 mag / 0.3x0.3'
About 11 arcminutes southeastward lies the pretty bright double star STF2016.

120mm f/5, 18x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
SQM-L 20.6: At 18x evident, but stellar. With [OIII] filter and without visible with direct vision. At 40x the nebula can be distinguished from a star. At 75x it appeared as a small, slightly turquoise colored disc.

NGC6058 (PN)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC6058, PK64+48.1, H3.637
Type: PN
Constellation: Her
Coordinates: 16h04m26.60s / +40°40'56.05"
Brightness / Size: v12.9 mag / 0.7x0.7'
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 4+
Small, well seen with averted vision. Appears like a fuzzy star.
MODERATE

NGC6210 (PN)

DSS

Name: NGC6210, PK43+37.1, Turtle Nebula
Type: PN
Constellation: Her
Coordinates: 16h44m29.49s / +23°47'59.68"
Brightness / Size: v9.7 mag / 0.5x0.5'

Well seen with averted vision. Stellar.

MODERATE
80mm f/6.25, 33x, Bortle 5, NELM 5.8, SQM-L 20.7
Evident with averted vision, almost stellar.

EASY
8" f/6, 37x, Bortle 5
Easy to find, very bright. At 37x stellar, at 80x like a fuzzy star. At 171x extended, round, slightly turquoise colored.
