Description:
120X-NGC4535 is a nearly face on galaxy showing spiral arms wrapping CW from a
weak core that gradual brightens.
220X The galaxy looks about the same as at 120X, but with just a little more
contrast. NGC4535 is elusive and reminds me of M33 which is more difficult due
to the larger scale.
