Description

IC 5217 (PN G100.6-05.4, PK 100-5.1) is an often overlooked planetary nebula in Aquarius. This tiny 12.6 magnitude object subtends a mere 6". A six inch will show the nebula as a faint star that looks slightly non-stellar. Look for a greenish hue. Larger apertures and high magnifications are required for a good view.

Was on my list of top 100 PNs to image but I think that was a bit of an overstatement!
