V = 10.6;  Size 2.8

17.5" (8/5/94): moderately bright, small, 1.5' diameter containing a 1' core and 
a small halo.  The core has a broad weak concentration with no nucleus.  The 
halo is mottled but difficult to achieve clear resolution.  Around the edges of 
the halo four or five mag 15.5 stars or fainter pop in and out of view.  The 
easiest resolved star is just at the north edge of the halo, a close pair is at 
the east edge and a single star is at the SE side.  An easy pair of mag 14 field 
stars at 20" separation is off the south side 1.6' from the center.  The 
interacting system U11672 lies 43' E.

13": fairly faint, small, small bright nucleus, small fainter halo.  Mottled and 
clumpy but not resolved at 360x.
