Observing the planetary nebula NGC4563

On April, 8th 2010 I observed the CatEye planetary nebula in Draco using my 21cm DK telescope. Althought it is quite small, I observed at 300x some structures inside this nebula. This has been confirmed with my test photo below:
At a 60x magnification, I could also observe the galaxy NGC6503 (10,2mag) in Draco. It was like ax quite small cigar but it was still observable even from my light poluted site. That didn't happen with its fainter "neighbour" galaxy NGC6654 (11,84mag).
