A small and suprisingly rather faint galaxy considering it's magnitude of 11.6 which has an equally faint stellar nucleus , a mag 13 star lies alongside to the East and a scattering of fainter stars are in the same field.
A fog came quite suddenly after this one was observed and brought the session to an abrupt finish.
