HOW TO FIND IT:
Simply scan between Beta and Lamda Lyrae.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
With binoculars, don't expect to see the well photographed smoke ring. It will have more of a solid look than that. In fact, at some low powers there is a sense in which it looks the opposite of a globular cluster, being a circular haze with a DIM center.
Through telescopes, the ring becomes easily defined and the challenge becomes trying to see the central in the ring's center.
