A uniform round halo which brightens rather abruptly to a bright,
stellar core.  A 10th magnitude field star is located off the NW
edge and a slightly fainter field star is positioned off the NE edge.
The galaxy and these field stars form a nearly equilateral triangle.
At 80x it appears as a slightly out of focus star.  With increased
magnification it is more clearly seen but without showing any additional
detail.  Best seen at 133x-267x.
