Seeing and Transparency: The seeing is okay. The transparency is bad.
Telescope: Zhumell Z12 12″ Dob
Log: Observed with Tele Vue Ethos 13mm, 115x. It’s a pretty bright, medium-sized haze, with a medium condensed core that is quite bright. There’s a star embedded within the halo at about 5 o’clock in the eyepiece filed of view, and the haze surrounding the core appears to have a thin elongation from about 2 o’clock to 8 o’clock in the eyepiece field of view. Almost like a bar.
