Right beside a medium bright star. At 80x slightly oval & almost evenly bright. At 150x evident with averted vision, oval. Center appeared slightly brighter, but not distinct. Probably I only percepted the bright core area.

bei 72x ist die Superthin sofort direkt sichtbar - ein zarter OW-elongierter Strich - Ausdehnung 6:1 - bei 160x wird die Galaxie noch deutlicher und bleibt auf der gesamten Länge sehr flach und homogen hell - das Highlight der Beobachtungsnacht
