I had not come across this planetary nebula before seeing it in the September edition of Astronomy Now.  It fits well with the Pegasus Challenge!  It is quite a large planetary nebula at 5' across, but rather dim at magnitude 15.

RA 23h35m54s  Dec +30o 28'02"

Its a lovely object and fun to image but I'm not sure its a supernova remnant.

Oh, I think I got carried away reading an article on SNRs and transferred that to Jones 1!  I need to take greater care.  Thank you for pointing it out Grant.
