A very faint outer halo was seen slightly buldging out from the E and W sides of the nebula. Scope was 12" dob.
Sab, you continue to amaze me with the detail you can see in faint PNs and galaxies. I'll have to try this one again on a night when the seeing will allow very high magnifications and see if I can see what you've seen.
