Caldwell 21.  Box Galaxy.  Remarkably looks very much like the photographs given
in O'Meara's book and on SEDS.  It is box shaped with a couple of nice knots
one good one right of center.  Textured and mottled, like a faint
unresolved globular.  Stretched north/south, the northwest corver is a little rounder
and enlarged, like seen in photos.  Surprisingly photograph like is all I can
