Very difficult galaxy. This galaxy would be in the same field as the
Planetary Nebula NGC 6818 using a low power wide field eye piece. The
surface brightness if this galaxy is very low and it is very easy to
hop right past it. The galaxy itself appeared as a very faint
brightening of the background. I could not detect any structure what
so ever even though the galaxy is quite large.
