314X--NGC2339 appears as an almost round shape with a very diffuse halo
and a very slightly brighter core with a non-stellar centeral nucleus or
brightning. The galaxy lies near the center of a triangle of brighter field
stars. The galactic background is not resolved. The galaxy is easy enough with
direct vision and averted vision doesn't add anything to the observation
