A uniform, elongated oval patch which is aligned N-S.  There is slight
brightening toward the core.  Due to low surface brightness, it appeared 
to be considerably fainter than its listed magnitude.  Visible with averted
vision at 77x but only while the field was in motion.  While it could be
held steady at 128x, it began to fade into the background at 257x.
