I was amazed when I saw this nebula through my 25x70 binoculars. It's quite a bright object, more so than I expected. Also, there was more color that came out using the UHC filter than I expected, much to my delight! Hubble's image of the center of this nebula is one of my favorites. Eventually I want to try imaging the same area in narrowband to have done it myself.
