The Small Magellan Cloud (SMC) is interesting with a UHC filter.
A line of 4 nebulae are visible in the SW including N249, N261 and H30. N267 can also be seen below that line. Moving north H36 and H37 are visible nearly half way up to N330. The brightest nebula N346 stands out between N330 and N371. To the NE of N346 there are 3 nebulous clusters N371, N395 and H80. The SE part of the cloud has 4 more nebulae. SE of N419 are N456 and N460, then to the east of those are L104 and N602. James Dunlop found L104 but John Herschel missed it. All of these can be seen with a 10" scope and a UHC filter, I saw them tonight.
The map below from SkyMapPro shows some of these objects.
The Herald-Bobroff AstroAtlas map E13 shows nearly all of them.
