Nice galaxy! Considerably small, pretty bright, very much
elongated E/W. Very suddenly much brighter to the middle.
Several stars involved or nearby: a 14th mag star lies on
the preceeding tip, a 13th mag starlies on the haze just
following the nuclear region, and a 9th mag star lies Nf.
There are several other 10 - 11th mag stars in the field.
