Personal "rating" (at this aperture, and sky condition):  B
Beautiful skinny edge-on with bright, elongated, edge-on core. Arms
lengthened dramatically with averted vision, otherwise I would 
have doubted the 11.5' listing. Have to re-visit this object since
my description does not fit the listing on width, perhaps I hit a 
galaxy nearby.
thanks!
