Quite faint, stellar. Anything but obvious.

MODERATE
B 40mm, 8x, Bortle 5, NELM 5.5
Stellar. Fairly well seen with averted vision. Detailed finder chart is highly recommended due to similarly bright stars in the surrounding!

MODERATE
80mm f/6.25, 33x, Bortle 5, NELM 5.8, SQM-L 20.7
Oval shape. Darkening toward the middle with averted vision.

EASY

At 28x evident and obviously extended, slightly oval. Darkening toward the middle nearly perceptible. Appeared at 75x as a wreath of smoke like a coffee bean.

EASY
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 6+, NELM 5.3, SQM-L 19.7
Oval ring, like a coffee bean. Longer sides a bit wider & brighter.
