Description:
This large galaxy could JUST be glimpsed with averted vision in
it's spot between the two "Hunting Dogs" and the Great Bear. The
faint smudge showed no apparent elongation, and seemed of uniform
brightness, belying the true nature of this lovely telescopic object.
[Steve- Not sure if edge-of-visibility binocular observations like
these are any interest to Webb readers. If not, please disregard.]
