203x- Halo is slightly asymetrical. It is slightly flatened on the east side 
giving it a bowed apperance. It is very slightly dimmer at the north end and 
there does not seem to be a brighter corebut mostly evenly bright except at 
the north. The stellar nucleus appears to be double with the brighter
lobe to the north.
