17.5": bright, fairly large, very small bright core, elongated SSW-NNE, about 
5.5'x4.0'.  Appears slightly darker on both sides of core (this is a gap between 
the spiral arms).  A mag 13.5 star is superimposed on the N side 1.0' from the 
center and a similar star is at the S end of the halo 2.2' from center.  A faint 
mag 14.5 star is just 48"' SW of the core.  N4526 lies 30' SSW.
