Scan the area just north of Gamma in Sagitta.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
This is the Dumbbell Nebula, and it has that appearance to many. I tend to see an hourglass. A few times, I have been able to sense just a hint of greenish color, but the nebula is usually white.
On lower powers, such as with a 4 1/4 inch reflector, I've seen a simple bar shaped nebula.
