Background sky: 2-3     Seeing: 2 
Weather: MW faint.                 


Brightness: 3 (neb.)    Alt: 45°
Description: Without the O-III: a very rich field, no clustering
evident. Maybe somewhat brighter stars in the area of the neby. 

Neby -75: Diam. about 20'. Round, slightly brighter near the
illuminating (?) star. A dust band was suspected cutting through
the northern fourth of the glow. This is faintly visible in the
drwaing (better when viewed with black background). The SW edge
seems a bit better defined than the rest, but the difference is
very small. Maybe some dust here too?
