I got some nice observations of planetaries in Cygnus and Aquila. There is an awesome variety of planetaries in this area. The blue flash was spectacular. I also was able to clearly see the bright spot detail on NGC 6894 which I've only seen one other time. We also observed it Jane's scope with averted vision. When I got up in the morning, it was pretty obvious how much things had cleared up. The sky was absolutely clear.
