Description: Somewhat startling to suddenly hit on
this object during a low-aperture binocular sweep!
Quite pretty, with clear extension out to at least
half a degree, with just a hint (in these skies) of
dark regions and spiral structure. Worth a look in
a wide-field instrument, the wider the better!
