Modern observations

Steve Coe

Coe, using a 13.1" f/5.6, notes: "NGC 7094 Very faint, pretty small, round, not brighter in the middle. Not much at 100X. Going to 135X with the UHC filter does not help."

13cm - not even cen * vis. BS, 3Aug1984, USNO.

15cm - exf haze around m13.5-14 * @ 80x confirmed using UHC and [OIII], which are about equally effective in giving only a wk-to-mod enhancement. 1'.5 diam and approx uniform using UHC. BS, 6Sep1989, Anderson Mesa.

30cm - vf, vlosfcbr; UHC filter doesn't help. 80" diam haze around m13.5 *. m14 * 20" NE of cen * w/in neb. dimmer in center? ring? not inspiring. BS, 3Aug1984, USNO.

1997 November 29/30, Sat/Sun: Jonkershoek, seeing 3, transparency 3, sky darkness 4, lim.mag. at south pole 6.0 (naked eye), 10.7 (binoculars at pole) Strong SE wind. "not found; faintest stars on the Uranometria's difficult here."

12-inch f/10 SCT (76x, 218x, 346x)

This planetary was only seen by point out the field stars around the really soft hazy around a very faint star. Very faint star seen next to the planetary star towards the NW or so it seems to me. Difficult to see the edges of the haze, it seems darker towards the middle. A string of three faint stars 12Magnitude just to the SE of the nebula, which was my point of indication.
