Description: A very faint galaxy. Only the core is 'easy', the
disk is next to impossible. The first think which draws
attention to this area is a group of several 14-15 mag stars in
front of the galaxy (at least they are stellar of POSS I). The
galaxy is extremely diffuse and round. The core might be
elliptical W-E. Size 2,5'x2'.
