PK 111-2.1 (Hubble 12) - bis

As I said in my previous post, whenever it will be clear again I will look once more for Hubble 12. Yesterday, January 6 was clear and yes, I can confirm I saw PK 112-2.1 without any doubt with my 20 cm scope

At 64x it was easily visible as a stellar object, and it reacted positively on an OIII filter. At this magnification I could see only 1 star next to the nebula. But at 104x I could see the 2 stars next to the nebula exaclty like on my finder chart. The object itself remains stellar at 104x

I have seen yesterday evening many other objects from the HII list and other planetaries, but that's a topic for another post.

Clear Skies
