Personal "rating" (at this aperture, and sky condition):  B/B-
I was really quite surprised at just how bright the nucleus is 
on this galaxy. It's amazing to think that the magnitude listed 
is the same as some of those which I can hardly make out in these
quasi-light polluted skies. (due to the integration) 
Oval and small, with that sudden star-like nucleus. 
thanks!
