Abell 46 (PN)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: Abell 46, PK55+16.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Lyr
Coordinates: 18h31m18.29s / +26°56'12.86"
Brightness / Size: v15.1 mag / 1.1x1.0'
8" f/6, 80x + UHC, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.2
Pretty faint, roundish, evenly bright. With [OIII] filter not much better.
MODERATE

K3-27 (PN)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: K3-27, PK61+8.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Lyr
Coordinates: 19h14m29.97s / +28°40'45.49"
Brightness / Size: b14.3 mag / 0.2x0.2'
8" f/6, 150x, Bortle 4+, SQM-L 21.3
Extremely faint, small, round. Barely held with averted vision. UHC filter had no effect.
DIFFICULT

M1-64 (PN)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: M1-64, PK64+15.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Lyr
Coordinates: 18h50m02.09s / +35°14'36.10"
Brightness / Size: v13.3 mag / 0.4x0.4'
120mm f/5, 150x, Bortle 4-, SQM-L 20.8
I also tried this planetary nebula at 40x (with UHC-/[OIII] filter) and 100x.

FAILED
152mm f/5.9, 100x + [OIII], Bortle 6, SQM-L 19.3

FAILED
152mm f/5.9, 100x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.3
Relatively well seen with averted vision, small, round, evenly bright.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
At 80x very compact and rather conspicuous with averted vision. At 150x round, evenly bright, small. UHC filter helps a bit.
MODERATE

M57 (PN)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: M57, NGC6720, PK63+13.1, Ring Nebula
Type: PN
Constellation: Lyr
Coordinates: 18h53m35.08s / +33°01'45.03"
Brightness / Size: v8.8 mag / 1.4x1.0'
B 40mm, 8x, Bortle 6-, NELM 5.3, SQM-L 19.3
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
55mm f/9.1, 40x, Bortle 6, NELM 5.0+, SQM-L 19.3
Immediately apparent at 40x, slightly oval with slightly darker center. At 90x recognizable as ring, slightly oval with obviously darker center, long sides slightly brighter.

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

EASY
4.5" f/8, 28x, Bortle 7+
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.
EASY

NGC6765 (PN)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC6765, PK62+9.1
Type: PN
Constellation: Lyr
Coordinates: 19h11m06.46s / +30°32'42.52"
Brightness / Size: v12.9 mag / 0.7x0.7'
120mm f/5, 150x, Bortle 4-, SQM-L 20.8

FAILED
152mm f/5.9, 100x + [OIII], Bortle 6, SQM-L 19.3
Roundish, fading edges, otherwise evenly bright. At 100x and 150x without any filter not visible.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 80x + [OIII], Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.2
At 80x with [OIII] filter evident, roundish, evenly bright. Without filter pretty faint. At 150x without filter evident with averted vision, slightly elongated.
