in der betreffenden Gegend ist die Orientierung extrem schwer, denn an der betreffenden Stelle gibt es keine vernünftigen Orientierungssterne - bei 72x und [OIII] ist mit etwas Geduld indirekt eine schwache Aufhellung sichtbar - der PN bildet mit drei helleren Sternen im Norden ein rechtwinkliges Dreieck - man muss sich ein wenig Einsehen, dann zeigt der PN leichte Helligkeitsunterschiede bzw. er wirkt unregelmäßig - bei 111x und [OIII] lässt die Sichtbarkeit nach
