Great obs! The Homunculus is a very unique object. Unlike any other nebula I can think of, it appears sharply defined with hard edged detail much like a solar system onject rather than the soft detail typically found in nebulosity.

Interesting obs between the Plossl and Nagler, perhaps the fewer elements in the plossl result in less light scatter offering a subtly cleaner view?
