Description: Round, strongly concentrated towards a almost
stellar nucleus. A typical elliptical galaxy. I got a call from
a friend (with a CCD camera). He had some out-of-place point of
light within this galaxy but the cloud cover had by then
thickened in Jyäskylä considerably and he couldn't confirm it.
So I had to check it. Nothing's out of place, though.
