A faint, round, uniform halo which shows slight, gradual diffuse brightening
toward the core.  A close pair of faint field stars, aligned N-S, are
located just off the S. edge.  Visible with averted vision at 77x, it bore
magnification well and was best seen at 257x.
Uranometria 2000.0 (2nd edition) plots several additional galaxies inside
of a 128x (34') field centered on NGC125.  None except for NGC128, located
~6' ENE, could be seen.
