2548 HYA OPNCL 08 13.8 -05 48 5.8 54.0' H VI 22 M48? Somewhat scattered, Very Bright, can be seen naked eye, 12 stars are resolved in 8X50 finder, many chains of stars, little compressed, 7 *'s near center form an arch or boomerang shape. One * 9 mag orange at 60X.
2811 HYA Sb 09 16.3 -16 18 13.0 2.7' H II 502 pretty Bright, very Elongated, much brighter middle at 100X. faint * in following arm
3242 HYA PLNNB 10 24.8 -18 38 8.6 40"X35" H IV 27 Wow, Looks like CBS eye, greenish at all powers, Central star easy at 300X. Very bright, large, round. AT 650X on a night I rated 8/10 for seeing, there is a small, dark circular area around the central star. A very nice planetary with lots of internal detail at high power.
3621 HYA GALXY 11 18.3 -32 49 9.9 10'X6.5' H I 241 Bright, Large, elongated, much brighter in the middle, seen in finder and 10x50 binocs, nice
