NGC 7789 / Caroline’s Rose

Spotted this tonight, first with binoculars and then 48x and then 160x. Prettiest in the highest magnification. I’m glad I read the description in the book about it looking like rose petals; very evocative and definitive. Can’t find a good picture online that looked like what I saw, the brightness compression of digital images destroys some of the structure. Would be a fun object to try to photograph well.
