location as forms the southern vertex of a small "kite" asterism (rhombus)
with two mag 10 stars 2.6' N and 2.7' NW and a mag 9.5 star 2.5' NE.  Very

At 134X, stellar requiring the O-III filter and averted vision. Good response to the O-III and UHC filters. No response to the H-B filter. At 169X, could see the PN with averted vision alone as a very faint star but needed the UHC filter to identify it as a PN. At 254X it is easier to see as a faint star with averted vision but still needed the UHC filter to identify it as a PN. Identified the field in the SEC finderchart.

At 79X, stellar, requiring the O-III filter and averted vision. Fair response to the O-III & UHC filters. No response to the H-B filter. At 134X, a hint of the PN can be seen with averted vision alone but it required the UHC filter to identify it as a PN. At 169X, it can be definitely seen with averted vision but still requires the UHC filter to identify it as a PN. At 254X, the PN still appears stellar.

13: at 79x appears as a mag 14 stellar object.  A quadrilateral of four mag
13 stars is between 3' and 6' S and SE.  PC 12 is collinear with two of
these stars 2.8' SE and 6.2' SE.  Slight contrast improvement with OIII
filter compared to these four stars but difficult to confirm due to weak
OIII response.

This PN was discovered by Guillermo Haro in 1952.
Field Description: At 62.5X, stellar, requiring the O-III filter and averted vision.  Strong response to the O-III filter.  Good response to the uHC filter.  No response to the H-B filter.  At 100X, can see the PN with averted vision alone but it still requires the UHC filter to identify it as a PN.  At 200X, can see the PN directly as a faint star, still requiring the UHC filter to identify it as a PN.
