17.5": fairly bright, large, about 5' diameter although the halo is irregular.  
The core appears as a bright bar running through the center and elongated WNW-
ESE with a fainter halo north and south of the bar. The bar is moderately 
concentrated and has a mottled texture.  There is a strong impression of very 
faint extensions or arms which begin to hook north on the WNW end and south on 
the ESE ends of the bar.  An extremely faint knot is just visible off the west 
side 3.3' from the center (this is an association near the edge of a spiral 
arm).  Several stars are near; a mag 10.5 star is 3.4' S of center, two mag 12 
stars are just north of the core 1.0' and 1.5' from the center and a wide pair 
of mag 12.5 star are 5' W.

8": faint, fairly large, diffuse, irregular, elongated 2:1 NW-SE, even surface 
brightness.  A mag 10 star is 3.5' S.
