Personal "rating" this aperture: B-
The galaxy in this amount of light pollution and
at this aperture is not at first particularly striking. 
Elongated and much brighter in the middle, fairly small,
and best viewed at around 150x. However, directly above 
(or below depending on your view) the galaxy's center
is a red star, and the arms of the galaxy point to another,
lesser star, making for a perfect 90 degree triangle.
